2018 League Annual Education Pre-Conference Session:

Arizona Education Progress Meter and Statewide Attainment Goal

Tuesday, August 21

9 a.m. - 12 p.m.


Education impacts all Arizonans. Our quality of life and the economic vitality of our communities thrive when education is a top priority.

Join us August 21 for this FREE session at the 2018 League Annual Conference for an important conversation about the state of education in Arizona, and the critical role city and town leaders are playing to advance education in local communities.

Last year, the Center for the Future of Arizona and Expect More Arizona launched a shared, statewide vision for education called the Arizona Education Progress Meter. Since then, more than 35 Arizona cities and towns have committed their support and are using progress meter data to inform their community decision making and strategic initiatives.

Session attendees will learn more about Arizona's roadmap for education and the progress being made. You will hear directly from local leaders and receive an insider’s look into effective strategies and programs addressing the need for improvements to better prepare our workforce and state for the future.
