The InterMountain Education Service District will host the 6th annual Eastern Oregon Executive Summit for regional education administrators July 28-29 at its headquarters in Pendleton. Oregon’s Chief Education Officer, Dr. Nancy Golden, as well as the state’s Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction, Rob Saxton, will attend.
Nearly 30 administrators from school districts all over eastern Oregon are registered to attend the event, which brings them together with board members and other district office staff to hear about state education issues and how they relate to eastern Oregon school districts.
Featured speakers include Golden and Saxton, who will speak about the Governor’s 40-40-20 Goal and Oregon Department of Education priorities for the coming school year, respectively. In addition, Executive Summit participants will hear from the Governor’s new Education Policy Advisor, Dani Ledezma, about the Governor’s priorities in education. The summit provides information that can be used for board and administrator retreats, and is a unique opportunity for eastern Oregon school executives to kick off the school year and vet new concepts in education. It’s the one time of year state leaders in education come together to network and work with local leaders in education.
