ASHLAND SCHOOL BOARD ATTENDS OSBA CONFERENCE IN PORTLAND For the first time in several years, the annual conference of the Oregon School Board Association was held in person in Portland the weekend of November 11-13. All members of the Ashland board attended along with Superintendent Bogdanove. At least two members were seeing the conference live for the first time. This gathering offers many speakers and workshops focused on issues that school boards manage, including: • the importance of student voice in school operations, • increasing support for teachers, • staffing shortages, • legislative changes on the horizon, • funding needs. All Board Members reported finding the experience informative, energizing and inspiring. Board Members are community volunteers and give hours of their time to make positive changes for Ashland students. Our thanks go to our Ashland School Board superheroes.

Over 130 ASD classified staff engaged in the Foundations of Equity training on their first day back to work yesterday. It was a great day of learning and an important step in making progress toward our strategic goal of creating a safe, welcoming, supportive, and inclusive environment for all students and staff. We are building a common baseline understanding of many of the facets of equity so that we can have ongoing conversations about our roles in promoting a healthy learning environment that supports all students in developing a sense of belonging and achieving their goals. Any staff member who hasn't yet participated in the Foundations of Equity class or similar training will do so on October 7.
