Oregon Association of Latina/O/X Administrators (OALA) Announces the Opening of the Application Process for Our 9th Cohort

The Oregon Association of Latino Administrators (OALA) is proud to announce the opening of the application process for Cohort 9 of the Aspiring Administrator Leadership Program for Latina/o/x in the state of Oregon.  The application opened on February 2, 2023 and will be due March 24, 2023.

The leadership program is the first of its kind in Oregon, 83% of our proteges are in an education leadership role.  With our partners, Coalition of Oregon School Administrators and Curriculum Associates we focus on preparing the next generation of Latina/o/x administrators with the skills necessary to be an effective leader.

Protégés are selected for the program based on their leadership experience and their commitment to raising the level of student achievement for the districts they serve. The process includes an application, resume, letter of support from the superintendent, and an interview.  

The year-long program covers: leadership development, best practices for equity and systemic reform, social justice and leadership, strategic planning, and administration preparation.

Protégés will require the following from their district leadership: letter of support from the superintendent that recognizes leadership potential, and sub coverage (up to 8 days) paid by the district for protege to participate in sessions.
