Oregon Educator Workforce Supply and Demand Summit

  • Oregon State University Learning Innovation Center (map)

FREE event hosted by OSPA, Chief Education Office, Cosa and TSPC

OSPA is partnering with the Chief Education Office, COSA, TSPC, and other partners to host an Oregon Educator Workforce Supply and Demand Planning Summit.

The Summit will address the gaps between educators completing licensure programs and educator positions needed in Oregon.  What does it mean when candidates who complete their program are still looking to be hired while many districts continue to report unfilled positions?  Does it point to a need for more racially and linguistically diverse educators?  Geographic location?  Or high need content areas? 

Using a Socratic Seminar format, the Summit will actively involve school district recruiters, superintendents, community college leaders, and educator preparation deans and directors to discuss educator workforce needs, strategies, and recommendations. 

Please join us – small, large, rural, urban and remote districts – your participation is critical. This Summit will provide specific recommendations for policy and resource needs to inform the 2019 Legislative session.

OSPA’s 2018 Spring Regional Meetings are CANCELED to encourage your participation at the Oregon Educator Workforce Supply and Demand Summit
