Smith’s presentation to “Kick off the New School Year” will outline his priorities and include a question-answer session. He began his work as state superintendent in May and is touring the state to visit schools and meet with educators and students.
Purvis will share with participants the role of the Illinois Secretary of Education in implementing Governor Bruce Rauner’s education vision: that all children have an education experience that readies them to be engaged citizens.
In addition to dinner and scheduled programming, division meetings offer networking opportunities and updates from IASB staff and directors on IASB resolutions, legislative updates, and other Association activities. Divisions may also offer tours, open houses, breakout sessions, or other presentations.
Brochures detailing the fall division dinner meeting plans are being mailed, and will be available online.
