ABOUT OACE
The Oregon Association for Comprehensive Education (OACE) was founded in October,1992 continuing the long tradition pioneered by the Oregon Department of Education of keeping administrators, teachers and educational assistants informed of—and prepared to—meet the needs of all students. Essential to this is providing the time to meet with colleagues from around the state and learn about what works in Title programs and what the Oregon Department of Education recommends for program development. OACE is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and as such devotes all its resources to further staff development and support for Oregon’s teachers, administrators, educational assistants and parents to provide a comprehensive educational experience for all students.

OACE MISSION STATEMENT
“OACE provides quality staff development and parental support to strengthen the educational experience for all students.”

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
OACE’s annual conference attracts parents, teachers, administrators, counselors, and others with an interest in comprehensive education for all students. Past conferences have enjoyed more than 300 participants from around Oregon as well as the world. Keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitors, vendors, and pre- and post-conference symposia highlight this three-day event.

This year, the conference will be held the Seaside Convention Center in Seaside, Oregon. The theme of this conference will be “Every Student Succeeds: Equity, Empowerment, and Engagement.” This year’s conference will focus on delivering training which will highlight strategies and techniques that educators and parents can use to more effectively support children’s education from cradle to career.

Invited Keynote Speakers include:
• Heather Anderson – Oregon’s 2016 Teacher of the Year
• Guadalupe (Wally) Ybarra – Culture Consultant/College Facilitator
• Melissa Junge – Federal/Regional Representative to discuss the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
