Objective: To provide second-year Oregon superintendents with an ongoing opportunity to participate in a collaborative learning network focused on leading their districts to student success for ALL students. A complimentary registration is provided to each Academy participant for both the Oregon Law Conference (Dec. 7-9) and the Winter COSA conference (Jan. 25-27).

Mentorship Support: Each Academy participant is paired with a skilled mentor. Every attempt is made to maximize the pairing of the new superintendent and the mentor. The facilitators of the Academy have decades of superintendent experience and are available for support throughout the year.

Cost: $795 for the year-long Academy experience.  Registration includes Law Conference and Winter Conference at no additional fee. Full scholarships are available for superintendents who are leaders of color, members of the LGBTQ community, or are bilingual leaders. Participants must have "active" status as a COSA member.
