2024 Legislative Agenda

Parent's can learn about OEA's full legislative agenda in our action center, but priorities of note for Oregon parent's include: 

Special Education Funding
OEA supports lifting the cap on SPED weighting in Oregon's formula for determining school funding. This change would help address Oregon's current crisis in special education, helping give districts the resources they need to providing students receiving special education services with the support they need to thrive.

Universal School Meals:
New federal funds mean Oregon has an opportunity to greatly expand access to meals at K-12 public schools, allowing more Oregon school districts to participate and providing more students with access to nutritious meals so they can focus on learning.

Summer Programming:
Ensuring continued state investments for summer school programs, and creating a task force focused on long-term sustainability for summer programming in Oregon.


Keeping the Promise of Quality Public Education

The Oregon Education Association (OEA) is a union committed to the cause of providing the basic right of great public education to every student. OEA represents about 41,000 educators working in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 public schools and community colleges. OEA’s membership includes licensed teachers and specialists, classified/education support professionals (ESPs), community college faculty, retired educators, and student members. OEA members also belong to the 3.2 million members of the National Education Association (NEA).
