The forums will provide information and seek input on K-12 education issues in Idaho. Task Force Chair and State Board of Education member Richard Westerberg will update participants on the progress of the Task Force, which has been meeting since January, and will share initial strategies and recommendations being discussed by the group.
“This is an opportunity for all stakeholders to learn about what the Task Force has been working on and to offer feedback and ideas about education in our state,” said Westerberg. “We hope to get the input of a broad cross section of the public including parents, students, educators and civic leaders.”
