Keeping the best people in front of Oregon’s students

Oregon School Personnel Association (OSPA) is a membership organization that serves as a statewide hub for Oregon public school employees with personnel administration or related responsibilities. We create a strong network to amplify best practices, provide relevant training and help navigate the complexities of HR in the Oregon public education sector as a trusted resource.
