A recap of the 2013 Summit

About 70 parents and community members came out to the Summit on January 26. In the morning John Tapogna and Tim Nesbitt dived into Oregon's complicated tax system and school funding structure. In the afternoon, we split into workshops on the NCLB Waiver, English Language Learners, school finance and lobbying. If you missed it, or would like a copy of the presentations, they are all available to download on the right-hand side of this page.
