Leadership Oregon is an advanced leadership course offered to qualified board members from OSBA member districts. Participants learn leadership skills and join a strong support network of education leaders from across the state. Leadership Oregon does have prerequisites, but two of the three prerequisite courses are available online. This course requires a solid understanding of basic board leadership skills and a firm time commitment. Participants must attend all sessions to graduate.

Leadership Oregon 2015 consists of four sessions, all held in Salem. Each session runs all day Friday and half of Saturday.

  • January 9-10: Advanced Leadership. Explore the board’s role in key current education issues.
