2016-2017 OACOA Seminar Series
The Oregon Association of Central Office Administrators has planned a series of three seminars during the 2015-16 school year. This seminar series is designed to provide timely professional development and networking support to central office administrators.
The agenda for each session will feature a combined group presentation on critical statewide priorities, related to implementation of state and federal programs, compacts, and initiatives, such as Smarter Balance, SB290, Common Core State Standards, federal programs, as well as other best practices in education. These discussions will be led by central office administrators with guest speakers from Oregon agencies, such as ODE, OEIB, and OEA, who will address the needs and concerns of a wide variety of central office administrators.
Additionally each session will have time built in for job-alike break-out sessions and collegial sharing of strategies and practices across the state to create a network of support and resources.
