Together we saw the Student Success Act's passage in 2019. At your local Fall Regional meeting you can learn what's next, including:

  • Planning for needs assessments and effective community engagement.
  • Ensuring accountability and transparency while your schools create better outcomes for students.
  • The full scoop on other important legislation from the 2019 session and how those bills affect your schools.
Please join the conversation and exchange ideas with other board members in your region.
OSBA is hosting meetings in 21 locations around Oregon. You can find a meeting near you or attend any meeting that meets your schedule.

We want to hear from your school board!

OSBA conducted 21 Fall Regional meetings across Oregon this October. Staff logged over 5,000 miles and connected with over 700 school board members and school administrators, all while never leaving the borders of our great state. OSBA President Tass Morrison and several other OSBA board members attended many of the Fall Regionals, spending time and making valuable connections with the association membership. Thank you all for your participation and leadership during these meetings. We would also like to thank each ESD for hosting their respective event.
