Oregon Rising respondents clearly identified two main priorities for providing the education they want for Oregon students: First, they said, add teachers and staff to reduce class sizes and give students the individual attention they need to be successful. Next, provide a more well-rounded education.
“Oregon kids deserve better than having one of the shortest school years and some of the largest class sizes in the nation,” said COSA Executive Director Craig Hawkins. “They deserve a well-rounded education, with challenging and engaging coursework, not only in reading and math and science, but also in music, the arts, engineering, PE, CTE, and more."
The Oregon Association of School Executives (OASE), COSA's superintendents' association, will conduct seven regional "Off-the-Record" meetings around Oregon this fall. Topics will include the results of the Oregon Rising public engagement campaign, the November election (including Ballot Measure 97), COSA’s 2017 legislative priorities, and more.
Sheila Roley, the new superintendent of Seaside School District and former principal of Seaside High School, has been chosen as the Bev Gladder Mentorship Award recipient by the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators.
