The 2019 Legislative Session, by any measure, was the best session for K-12 public education in a generation.  Highlighted by the work of the Joint Committee on Student Success and the passage of the Student Success Act (House Bill 3427), Oregon will invest $1 billion per year into the PreK-12 education system to start to address funding problems that have plagued Oregon schools for decades.

COSA was proud to honor our 2019 award winners at the 45th Annual COSA Conference in Seaside, June 19-21 this year. Congratulations to the following award winners!
