Symposium discusses state’s ambitious ‘40/40/20’ initiative

Release Date: 
3/9/2012

Following Cannon’s keynote, participants in the satellite locations will discuss how this plan will affect their local communities. Dr. Mark Mulvihill, superintendent of the InterMountain Education Service District, will facilitate this discussion in Hermiston, as well as discuss opportunities for students through the Eastern Promise, a new program in eastern Oregon that will level the playing field for high school students to earn their associate’s degrees and other college credit prior to graduation.

The satellite locations will combine a mix of streaming Internet video with local networking and workshop sessions.

These local workshops will include topics such as building and sustaining partnerships, parental involvement, and working with undocumented students.
