About Oregon Elementary School Principals Association (OESPA)

Oregon Elementary School Principals Association (OESPA) serves those administrators who are actively engaged in the administration or supervision of elementary and middle school students.  Principals, vice principals of elementary and middle schools as well as other administrative personnel in the elementary and middle schools are eligible to become OESPA members.

The purpose of the OESPA Executive Committee is:

  • to promote, improve and exert a leadership role for the educational welfare of Oregon's children;
  • to encourage continual professional growth among principals;
  • to work cooperatively with other organizations, institutions and individuals interested in education; and
  • to develop cooperation and fellowship among elementary school principals.

OESPA is a state affiliate of the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP).
