Participants will receive the Breaking Ranks II text published by the National Association of Secondary School Administrators, a three ring binder with materials that support the training activities during the two days, and breakfast and lunch for both days of the conference. Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m.Rooms at the Wilsonville Holiday Inn are available at the state rate for those participating in the COSA Breaking Ranks II Conference. If you have any questions or need accommodations due to a disability, please contact Bill Beck at the COSA office, (503) 581-3141, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
