Learn about efforts and ideas for reform to improve education in Oklahoma.

New this year, the 2020 State of Schools will be in a virtual format that will allow participants to view the event from the convenience of their home or work.

This year's keynote speaker is Jaime Casap who served as the Chief Education Evangelist at Google for more than 14 years. Casap has worked with educational organizations around the world, helping them find ways to continuously improve the quality of education by utilizing and enabling technology capabilities.

In addition to Casap's address, a distinguished panel of K-12 and higher education leaders will also provide their insight to the future of education in Oklahoma. The K-12 panel will discuss the 2019-20 school year and how they approached learning in response to the pandemic. The group will also discuss how their districts plan to address the upcoming school year and how their approach to education might be adapted depending on the impact of COVID-19.

K-12 Panel

Dr. Sean McDaniel, Superintendent of Oklahoma City Public Schools

Brent Bushey, Executive Director of Oklahoma Public School Resource Center

Dr. Nick Migliorino, Superintendent of Norman Public Schools
