Oregon educators now have a stronger voice at the bargaining table, in the halls of the Capitol, at the ballot box, in their classrooms and communities, and in policy discussions at the local, state and federal levels.
We are seeing a record number of OEA members engaged in new and exciting ways to lead their union and their profession.
The Strategic Action Plan, a key component of OEA’s Mission, Vision, and Core Values, is a new way of approaching the work we do as a union. As a reminder, OEA member delegates to the 2012 Representative Assembly reaffirmed their commitment to the Strategic Action Plan and approved a number of new Action Items forwarded by the OEA Board of Directors that support implementation of the Plan.
The Strategic Priorities included in OEA's Strategic Action Plan are:
- Educator-Driven Innovation and Public Policy: Leading the Way to
- Great Public Schools
- Building Powerful, Visionary, Member Driven Locals
- Re-shaping Politics in Oregon – From the Grassroots
- The OEA Union School
Over the course of the last year, OEA has built upon the initial successes of the Strategic Action Plan by broadening the depth and reach of the programs, trainings, and leadership development opportunities offered to and by members and local leaders.
