Oregon school boards have until 5 p.m. to submit their official regional ballots for the open OSBA Board of Directors and Legislative Policy Committee positions.
The board offers guidance for the association, and the committee helps develop OSBA’s legislative approach. Representatives are chosen according to regions, usually for two-year terms.
This year’s open board regional positions are Eastern (1), Gorge (2), Southeast (4), Lane (6), Clackamas (8), Linn/Benton/Lincoln (10), Marion (12), Yamhill/Polk (13, a one-year term), North Coast (14), Washington (16 and 20), and Multnomah (18 and 19, a one-year term).
All 20 Legislative Policy Committee regional positions were up for election, but seven did not have a candidate and representatives were appointed by the OSBA Board. The full committee is made up of the voting members of the OSBA Board and representatives from 14 regions and the Oregon School Board Members of Color Caucus.
