PANEL DISCUSSION: K-12 preparing Back to School – with COVID-19
We’re all making decisions on a daily basis to keep our families and employees safe in the midst of the pandemic. Superintendents have the difficult decision of balancing the safety of Oklahoma children and teachers, while still ensuring ensuring children are able to continue learning. Join us on Wednesday, August 5th for a panel discussion with Dr. Rick Cobb, Superintendent of Mid-Del Public School; Craig McVay, Superintendent of El Reno Public Schools and Dr. Nick Migliorino, Superintendent of Norman Public Schools. We will be holding this luncheon in two formats. In person with a 50 person limit and virtual via Zoom.
