The State Department of Education will hit the road starting next week to review the 2014 legislative session with local district officials.
The department's annual post-legislative tour will focus on several education bills passed during the 2014 session - including teacher leadership premiums, strategic planning and school safety legislation.
Other presentations will focus on two contentious technology issues that marked the just-competed 2014 legislative session: the Idaho Education Network high school broadband project, and the state high school Wi-Fi project. Another panel will focus on the transition to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium exam, a Common Core-based exam that will be field-tested in Idaho schools this spring.
The Boise meeting is April 8 from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Grove Hotel.
