Equity & Anti-Racist Stance:
COSA is a coalition of K-12 education leaders committed to equity and the success of every Oregon student and staff member. To that end, we will develop and support K-12 leaders in:
  • Race is a central to our equity work. It is our belief and experience that going deep and staying focused on race supports each of us in building our will, skill, and courage to see and interrupt systemic barriers in our schools and districts not only around race, but all forms of inequities and oppression.
  • Transforming our systems and institutions by crafting, and implementing, anti-racist policies, budgets, programs, and practices that translates into resource allocation, education rigor, and opportunities for students and staff who are members of historically marginalized groups.
  • Supporting districts and ESDs to recruit, hire, support, develop, promote, and retain staff (classified, certified, and administrative) who reflect the diversity of the students in our state.
  • Cultivating the unique gifts, talents, and interests of every Oregon student so that success and failure are no longer predicted nor predetermined by race, ethnicity, culture, family economics, mobility, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or initial proficiencies.
Purpose of Conference:
Nearly 20% of all Oregon students have direct experience with the state’s English Learner programs. Within this student population there is tremendous diversity in their lived experiences, and in the cultural and linguistic assets they bring to their schools and districts. The purpose of this conference and the sessions presented will aspire to the goal of engaging and challenging all learners to ensure academic excellence through accessible, inclusive and personally meaningful learning opportunities.
