At the December Board meeting, the Board of Directors of the Sherwood School District passed a resolution in support of “The Promise of Oregon” campaign.  The campaign aims to create public support for K-14 education, to help meet the state’s 40-40-20 goals and lift student achievement and graduation rates.   “The Promise of Oregon” campaign is an important step in raising awareness about the value of public education in shaping the next generation of Oregon’s leaders, workers and citizens.  

The “Promise” campaign is being coordinated by the Oregon School Boards Association (OSBA).  The campaign is based on two defining principles: 1) Today’s students are Oregon’s greatest natural resource.  2) We as Oregonians must invest in our public schools so the next generation can reach its potential.

OSBA is a member services agency for more than 200 locally elected boards serving school districts, education service districts and community colleges.  It also provides services to charter schools and their boards.
