Deans and Directors Meeting Returns to Fall Conference!
The Summer Board Meeting was held at the Capital Building in House Room #1.
Board members had a chance to meet with policy makers and express viewpoints that concern education from Pre-K to Higher education. Special thanks to Delegate Jennifer McClellan and Holly Coye, Deputy to Secretary Holton.
The 2016 VACTE/ATE Virginia Day on the Square was a great day to meet, greet and speak with
the policy makers in the General Assembly!
Make sure you make contact with your local representatives now for the up-coming legislative session.

The 44th annual Phi Delta Kappa (PDK)/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools was recently released, highlighting Americans’ points of agreement and difference on education across the political spectrum. The accompanying report, Public Education in the United States: A Nation Divided, showed split opinions on issues including teacher evaluations and school choice vouchers, as well as shared views on the benefits of the Common Core State Standards confidence in public school teachers.
