The Education Leadership Conference will kick off on Thursday, Aug. 24 with the 4th Annual Dr. Bob Mooneyham Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament and the New Laws for Schools Pre-Conference sessions (more information below).
State schools Superintendent Joy Hofmeister will help kick off this year’s conference. Hofmeister has overseen a variety of changes in education since taking office in 2015. Schools have new English and math academic standards and new tests, and the state is nearing completion of its Every Student Succeeds Act plan. Under her leadership, the state Education Department has worked to reduce red tape for schools.

We’ll kick off the afternoon with a discussion about school finance and budget issues. Then, attendees can choose from breakout out sessions on a variety of student, employment and board issues.
