Mark your calendars for the 2014 OEP Conference on Thursday, May 15, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Clinton Center in Little Rock! We are very excited about this year’s theme of College & Career Readiness in Arkansas High Schools. The agenda is in a formative stage, but we plan to have speakers and panels that focus on three major themes: “What Arkansas is Doing Now” to prepare students for their chosen paths, “What Arkansas Could Do” to improve college and career-readiness, and “Advising Students.” We will also, of course, honor our OEP Award Winners, and we plan on playing a round of educational trivia to keep things fun. Furthermore, after the conference, tours of the Clinton Center will be available to conference attendees.
We are hoping for a great turnout of school administrators, principals, high school counselors, teachers and policymakers. Help us spread the word! Also, please let us know if you have ideas for conference speakers and panel discussions. Hope to see you there!
