City Club August forum: Are Our Kids Ready For the Future?

Thursday, August 16, 2018, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

What high school graduation rate tell us (and don’t) about education in Central Oregon
Graduation rates in Central Oregon are climbing. More students are finishing high school thanks to collaborative initiatives and community partnerships. But what’s the real story behind this trend? Are we doing enough to ensure that students are prepared for real-world success? Are we connecting them with opportunities beyond high school? What role does higher education play in these partnerships?

Join Central Oregon’s education leaders at August’s City Club of Central Oregon for an honest conversation about student achievement. We’ll talk about the numbers, the stories behind the numbers, and the successes and challenges of getting kids ready for the future.

The forum will include a panel and discussion including:

Shay Mikalson, Superintendent of Bend La-Pine School District
Mike McIntosh, Superintendent of Redmond School District
Katie Condit, Executive Director of Better Together
Dr. Shirley Metcalf, President of Central Oregon Community College, will introduce the topic and moderate a lively and interactive discussion.

Cost: $25 members / $40 non-members. Plated lunch is included.
