School Board Members

Dan Forbess
Board Chairman
Term Aug 2019 to June 2023

Our family moved to Oakland from Eugene in 1993.  My wife, Joan, worked as a teacher/counselor in Oakland for 20 years and our three children, Hillary, Blake, and Trevor graduated from OHS in 1998, 2002 and 2005, respectively.  I served as the Oakland superintendent for eight years and retired from full-time work in 2015.  We chose Oakland as our home because of the schools and community. I enjoy working on our 120 year-old home, in part, to help maintain the historic beauty of Oakland.

Brent Parker 
Vice Chair
Term Oct 2018 to June 2025

My name is Brent Parker and I am proud to be an Oaker alumni, Class of 1984.  Oakland has been part of my whole life as my grandparents lived in the community so growing up I visited often.  I moved back to Oakland several years ago with my wife Tammy and our three children Amanda, Matthew and Jesse.  I am involved in my local church in the areas of music and youth ministry.  I like playing the guitar, singing, Sci-Fi and spending time with my family.   Oakland is a special community and I feel blessed to live here.
