Town hall series will bring campaign for education funding to Pendleton
Thursday, January 3, 2019
OSBA’s first town hall to support school funding advocacy will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton. The meeting will be held in the Science & Technology building, Room 200.
The series of town halls running through March are part of “Oregonians for Student Success,” an OSBA campaign for adequate and stable state K-12 school funding.
Area school board members, including OSBA Board Vice President Scott Rogers (Athena-Weston SD), will help lead the event, and OSBA Legislative Services Director Lori Sattenspiel will be available to answer questions. OSBA has committed to revenue reform and cost containment advocacy in the 2019 Legislature.
Local legislators and school board members are invited to the town hall series to moderate discussions on education and answer audience questions. Attendees will be able to sign up for the campaign so they can join the push for increased Oregon education spending, revenue reform and cost containment.
The town halls will also show “A Time to Listen,” a potent documentary on Oregon’s chronic education funding problem and the legislative drive for a solution through the Joint Committee on Student Success.
