Nationally Recognized Expert to Speak to Public August 29

/ 22 August 2012 / eunice

ELK RIVER, MN – ISD 728 will host internationally-recognized education expert Dr. Jamie Vollmer for a special public presentation, 8 p.m., Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at the Elk River High School Zabee Theater (900 School Street). Vollmer will speak on the topic, “Schools cannot do it alone” and how it relates to this school district. The public is encouraged to attend this free presentation.

Vollmer is an award-winning champion of public education, and the author of the highly acclaimed book of the same name as his topic. He has spent the last twenty years working with school districts, education associations, foundations, and chambers of commerce across the nation to halt the erosion of public trust and build support for America’s public schools. Once a harsh critic, he has become an articulate friend of America’s public schools. His presentations combine statistics, logic, and humor to energize and encourage educators, business leaders and community groups to work together to build successful schools.

Vollmer’s presentation aligns with the school district’s 2012-2017 Strategic Plan of continually engaging in experiences that benefit the community.
