• Again I wish to say to our retirees how much you will be missed. Your work with our young people is greatly valued. The district’s reputation for excellence in service to children is in large part due to your efforts. We wish you well in all that you do.
• There is much in the way of legislation that we wish to review with you. We are putting that in a form that reduces the bill language to summary form and outlines the actions required by the district in regard to the new and amended statutes. We hope to have that for you at our second meeting in July. Our complements to the United Suburban Schools Association for the comprehensive review of legislation provided by school law attorneys and representatives from the Oklahoma State Department of Education. I am sure we will have additional clarification at the State Superintendent’s Leadership Conference in July as well as the OSSBA/CCOSA Conference scheduled for late August.

The program was created to develop young leaders who feel hope, pride and a responsibility for Oklahoma’s future.
