Strong Schools, Strong State

This is an image of $name

We are a coalition of education leaders – the Oregon School Boards Association, Oregon PTA, Oregon School Employees Association, Oregon Small Schools Association, Confederation of School Administrators, Oregon Education Association, Oregon Association of Education Service Districts and Oregon Association of School Business Officials – united in the Strong Schools, Strong State campaign to prioritize education in our state investments by supporting adequate and stable funding that ensures a full academic school year for every child in Oregon.


Our Vision for Oregon

A dynamic 21st-century school system that provides each student a world-class education that results in Oregon students becoming responsible and productive citizens of our communities, state and nation. Oregon will make wise, strong investments in this vision, creating strong schools that serve as the foundation of a strong, prosperous state, now and into the future.

We will work as a unified body, speaking with one voice, in support of adequate and sustainable funding for public education at a level that provides for a full academic year; staffing levels necessary to operate and provide the instruction needed for students to meet state goals and standards; and a varied curriculum that meets the needs of Oregon’s students.

The state must achieve and maintain funding and program access and equity for all students.

Education partners

We are school boards who have adopted a board resolution in support of the Strong Schools, Strong State campaign.
