The Oregon Legislature created the State Board of Education in 1951 to oversee the state’s schools. The board sets educational policies and standards for Oregon's 197 public school districts, and 20 educational service districts. All of these agencies have separate governing bodies responsible for transacting business within their jurisdiction.
The Oregon State Board of Education is comprised of seven members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate. Five members represent Oregon’s five congressional districts, and two members represent the state at large. Members serve four-year terms and are limited to two consecutive terms. Board members elect their chair each year. The State Board meets at least six times per year and the public is welcome to attend State Board meetings.
The Oregon State Board of Education will work collaboratively and inclusively with stakeholders to develop and sustain a public education system that empowers every student to reach their full potential.
If you would like to provide public comment to the State Board of Education or be added to the Public Meeting Notices email list, please contact the State Board Administrator.
