Early registrants save $50 on the Nov. 9-12 Portland convention and workshops for the Leadership Institute, administrative professionals and the Council of School Attorneys.
The convention, which is focused on “Leadership to lift our promise of graduation,” features more than a dozen graduation rate-related workshops. Topics include chronic absenteeism, career and technical education, trauma-informed practices, and intervention and tracking systems.
Convention attendees from around the state can meet, share ideas and be inspired at more than 50 sessions on education issues, challenges and successes. Meals, exhibits and three keynote speakers add to the opportunities. Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch will talk about the call to duty, Wayne M. Maines will address bullying and discrimination, and David Zach will give an informed look into the future.
Steve Kelley, OSBA director of board development, said networking opportunities are plentiful and part of “the unique experience our convention offers.”
The convention provides a chance to celebrate the achievements of Oregon’s students, educators and school districts through the Promise of Oregon campaign, which this year is focused on lifting graduation rates statewide.
Registration closes Oct. 30 so OSBA staff can prepare badges and other materials. Onsite registration at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront the day of the events is possible, though.
