The 2011 OSBA/COSA Legislative Report contains a description of each of the bills signed into law following the 2011 Legislative Session. It was prepared with the collaboration and cooperation of staff at the Oregon School Boards Association and the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators. Together, OSBA and COSA work to ensure the interests and viewpoints of locally elected school board members and public school administrators are given a voice at the Legislature when laws affecting public schools are proposed and deliberated.
