Please join us as we honor and celebrate Kathleen “Kathie” Straus to note our gratitude for her service on the State Board of Education.

The State Board of Education adopted numerous policies supporting our students, teachers and communities during her years of service. Her personal and professional awards and achievements are many and well-deserved. To read Mrs. Straus’ bio in greater detail, please click here. Mrs. Straus will be honored at an informal reception:
