From the Oregon Education Investment Board:

The Oregon Education Investment Board (OEIB) will hold seven community forums and a webinar at which stakeholders can provide input and feedback on education funding.

The OEIB will present its vision for building a seamless P-20 system and, most important, provide an opportunity for all Oregonians to engage in the conversation and share their own expectations and priorities.

The forums will be held from October 15th through the 30th at 6-8:00 p.m., and will offer a family-friendly area for parents with children, as well as light snacks and refreshments.

Anyone wishing to speak must sign in beginning at 5:30 p.m. Individuals will be heard on a first come basis. Each speaker will be given two minutes.  Public comments may also be emailed to: Education.Investment@state.or.us.
