The Confederation of Oregon School Administrators (COSA) serves and represents more than 2,000 school administrators, managers and executives. COSA supports and develops educational leaders with unmatched professional development opportunities, including statewide conferences, regional seminars and workshops, and much more, and a variety of exclusive member services. COSA was founded in 1974 to give Oregon's education leaders a united voice in helping to shape public policy, advocate for schools and speak on behalf of students. Visit our home page for more information about what we offer.
The Educational Excellence Group is led by Dr. Mickey Garrison, who has assembled a team of working professionals with experience in a wide variety of educational settings. They are national consultants, administrators and teachers, learning specialists and school improvement experts. They work in rural and urban settings and at the classroom, district, state and national levels. The one thing they have in common is a dedication to helping you in your efforts to improve achievement for all students. We have unparalleled experience in working with data teams. Most team members have many years of learning and training with the Oregon Direct Access to Achievement Project, an innovative professional development initiative that builds an integrated approach for using data to inform instruction.
