2020 OACOA/OASE/OASBO Winter Conference

The Oregon State Conference for Superintendents, Central Office Administrators, and Business Managers is organized by COSA and will take place this year from January 22-25th. OASE, OACOA, and OASBO welcome their members to explore best practices and possibilities in areas like educational administration, policy and leadership. COSA brings exemplary speakers to discuss critical issues that affect students, leaders, communities and school systems. Preparation for the upcoming Legislative Session leanings as well as important budgeting and personnel issues are all shared related to implementation of the Student Success Act. By far the most critical timing and highest priority topics of the year are addressed at this Statewide Conference.
