About Oregon Association of School Executives (OASE)

The Oregon Association of School Executives (OASE) serves licensed school administrators who are directly responsible to a board of education; who serve as superintendents, or as a deputy, associate, area or assistant superintendent; and who are district level directors in personnel, business management or collective bargaining.  OASE includes the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and deputies or assistants to that office.

The purpose of the executive committee is to serve members in a continuous effort to improve education and educational administration through striving:

  • to exercise leadership in promoting the best interests of all education;
  • to improve educational programs through studies of problems and developments in areas selected by its membership;
  • to direct and sponsor in-service programs and activities designed to improve the effectiveness of its members in performing their various roles as administrators; and
  • to work cooperatively with other organizations - within and out of the profession - when goals are to improve public education.

OASE is a state affiliate of the national Superintendents Association (AASA).
