John George, principal of Fleming Middle School in Three Rivers School District, has been named the Oregon Middle School Principal of the Year by the Oregon Association of Secondary School Administrators (OASSA) and the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators (COSA).
COSA and OEIB are partnering on this unique opportunity to explore poverty's impact on education. Featured speakers will include Oregon first lady Cylvia Hayes, and national experts Lori Beamer and Donna Beegle. All participants will also participate in a moving and thought-provoking poverty simulation.
With public schools in Oregon just over a year away from having the opportunity to implement state-funded full-day kindergarten, COSA’s first Statewide Full-day Kindergarten Summit is set for Friday, May 2, at the Red Lion Hotel in Salem.
