Oregon school boards have one week left to vote on their regional representatives to the OSBA Board of Directors for 2021.
The coming year will require leadership with pandemic learning, a full legislative session, tightening budgets and an increased focus on equity and racial justice. The OSBA Board offers guidance for the association as it advocates for stable and adequate funding and provides local boards with support and development.
“It’s going to require a whole bunch of leadership and support to make sure our students get what they need,” said outgoing OSBA Board President Kevin Cassidy.
Serving on the OSBA Board is an invaluable opportunity to be part of statewide education decision-making, said Cassidy, a Baker School Board member.
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).
