Salt Lake City (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced that Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday will keynote at the 2014 School Improvement Innovation Summit about creating systemic change to support educator effectiveness and increase student learning.
“Helping 100 percent of educators become as effective as possible and 100 percent of students master the skills they need to be college and career ready requires systemic support, not just classroom-level plans,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “In his work in the Kentucky school system, Dr. Holliday can speak to the type of systemic change and support required to create impactful advances in student learning and educator effectiveness and how educators and administrators in any school or system can be a part of such meaningful systemic changes.”
Dr. Holliday was selected as Kentucky’s Commissioner of Education in July 2009. Prior to that position, he served as superintendent of the Iredell-Statesville school district from 2002-2009, during which time the district received the 2008 Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award. In December 2010, Dr. Holliday was named to the board of directors for the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and he currently serves as president. He is also serving a four-year term on the National Assessment Governing Board, responsible for setting policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
The 2014 School Improvement Innovation Summit will be held September 29-October 1 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
