Webinar: Common Core Information for Board Members

December 2, 2013 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

As full implementation of the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics approach, school board members across Oregon are receiving questions from parents and community members at an increasing rate. OSBA is offering you the opportunity to learn more about the Common Core and, more importantly, ask questions about the impact this initiative will have on the work of your school board and staff.

Our agenda includes:

  • Common Core 101 for school board members
  • Challenges for school boards and school districts
  • State Level Update and Q-and-A with Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton 


  • Betsy Miller-Jones, OSBA Executive Director
  • Rob Saxton, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction
