Oregon Association of Secondary School Administrators (OASSA) serves those administrators who are actively engaged in the administration or supervision of secondary and middle schools/students.  Membership includes principals and vice principals of middle schools, junior highs, high schools and all other levels of administrators in the secondary school.
The purpose of the executive committee is:
