Halsey, OR - The Oregon Small Schools Association (OSSA) is proud to announce Amanda O’Brien as its 2017 Administrator of the Year. O’Brien is the principal of Central Linn Elementary School and has led the school for five years. When she arrived, the school had been identified as one of 61 Oregon Title 1 schools labeled as a “focus school”, meaning in the bottom 15 percent of Oregon schools based on the standards measured for ESSA. Nearly the entire state of Oregon (over 1,300 schools) were performing better than Central Linn Elementary.
