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).
Off the Record Meetings
OASE Off the Record Meetings are held periodically through out the school year, usually three-to-five times per year. They are attended by school superintendents from all of Oregon's school districts and ESDs, and invited guests.
Education Leadership Coalition (ELC)
The OASE Education Leadership Coalition (ELC) was established to develop consensus among superintendents regarding matters of educational policy and school funding. Consensus positions developed by the ELC are used to form advocacy plans and proposals, and to advise COSA staff and guide conversations with legislators and other policymakers.
