Advocacy and Action

OPSBA’s Work Teams and Ad Hoc Committees develop policy positions as well as responses to government legislation and regulations. These positions and responses are vetted and refined by Executive Council and the Board of Directors prior to being accepted as Association policy. This is a process that ensures effective, comprehensive and sensitive responses to major government announcements and significant education issues.
