School boards have until Dec. 18 to submit their official regional ballot. Local school board members decide how their board will vote as a unit for a regional candidate.
The OSBA Board offers guidance for the association as it advocates for stable and adequate funding and provides local boards with support and development. The board and the resolution will be guiding OSBA’s work as schools face the coronavirus pandemic, tighter budgets, and increased awareness of equity and racism issues.
This year’s board election regions are Central (3), Southern (5), Clackamas (7), Clackamas (8, which is a one-year term), Douglas/South Coast (9), Marion (11), Yamhill/Polk (13), Washington (15) and Multnomah (17 and 19). Elected members take office Jan. 1.
