About Us

The Organization of School Administrators and Supervisors (OSAS) of the Detroit Public School Community District is the sole collective bargaining agent for administrators and supervisors represented by the organization.  Our purpose is to improve education by strengthening the leadership  role and raising the status of school administrators and supervisors.

OSAS reviews present policies and procedures with the superintendent of schools and has a strong and clear voice in the establishment of new policies and procedures affecting administrators and supervisors. We represent administrators and supervisors in matters pertaining to salary and working conditions.

OSAS fosters improved communications and working relationships between individuals represented by OSAS and the Board of Education, the Superintendent, other boards of education employee groups, representative citizens' groups  and the public at large.

Our union is an affiliate of the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), the exclusive national labor union for school administrators, professionals, and supervisors speaking out for excellence and equity in all of our schools, workplaces and communities.

AFSA members are leaders in their schools and communities and are charged with the privilege and responsibility of helping to mold our nation’s students into successful, mindful individuals.

As school leaders, AFSA members are constantly advocating for better public schools and systems of education. In regards to education reform, AFSA members support reforms that put students first and include school administrators in the discussion and implementation.

As a union affiliated with the AFL-CIO, AFSA members recognize the importance of collective bargaining rights and their right to organize. AFSA members are active in the labor movement and proudly stand in solidarity with all trade unionists and school administrators.
