The Legislative Platform Committee (LPC) was created in May 1996. The purpose of the LPC is to develop a recommended legislative platform for consideration by the OSBA Delegate Assembly. Annually, the LPC reviews resolutions submitted by member boards of education to amend the OSBA Legislative Platform and makes recommendations to the Delegate Assembly accordingly. Other duties of the LPC are:

  • to assist in the state legislative effort as needed;
  • to assist in the federal legislative effort as needed;
  • to serve on ad hoc committees as needed; and
  • to conduct a briefing prior to the annual business meeting at the Capital Conference.

The LPC consists of 25 school board members, five appointed by each regional executive committee from its membership. In appointing representatives to the LPC, regional executive committees shall give careful consideration to balance and diversity in the types of school districts represented. Members of the Executive Committee serve in an ex-officio capacity.

The LPC meets annually in August and is chaired by the OSBA president-elect. LPC members are reimbursed for roundtrip mileage for travel to the August meeting.  For more information, contact the Division of Legislative Services.
