Webinar - Get On Board Information Session
January 13, 2021, 12:00 pm
Get on Board and become a voice for Oregon students!
In this free webinar, we will introduce attendees to the roles and responsibilities of school boards in Oregon, discuss the authority and limits of a school board, and highlight the importance of board member relationships with fellow board members and the superintendent. We will also talk about the qualifications to run for a board position and the election process, including topics such as financial and time commitments.
In this free webinar, a panel of diverse experienced board members are joined by Oregon high school students enrolled in REAP, a local multicultural youth leadership nonprofit organization for a Q&A session. Board members will share their experiences running for a board position and why they decided to run, recommendations/tips for how to run for a board position, information about the impact a diverse board can have on student achievement, questions and issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion, and why everyone, including BIPOC and younger generations, should consider running for board positions.
REAP students from Oregon will share their experiences, challenges they face relating to equity and disparities in education and suggestions for improving board member-student relations. Bring your questions about running for a board position, the election process, board work, and student engagement!
