Lunch with Leaders in Education: Part II

“Challenges In the Trenches of K-12 Public Education”

Dr. Sandra Husk, Superintendent of
Salem-Keizer Public Schools
 Salem City Club is proud to present Dr. Sandra Husk, Superintendent of Salem-Keizer Public Schools as the second speaker in our series featuring Leaders in Education on Friday, February 17, at noon.
Dr. Husk will report what has developed in Salem-Keizer this academic year following the release of 231 licensed teachers and 139 classified staff at the end of last year, due to budget cuts.  She will address current initiatives of innovation and reform within the district.  She will share what themes have surfaced as major concerns and hopes from the many public  meetings held throughout the district since September.
The financial/budget situation is grim.  The deep lay-offs last year were necessitated by the loss of $54 million of state funding for academic year 2011-2012.  Added to cuts the two previous years, the net loss to Salem-Keizer is approximately $100 million.  Current state budget projections predict the loss of an additional $20 million from the budget for next year.  Dr. Husk will help the community address the key question:  Can high quality educational programs be maintained in the wake of such deep and continuing reductions in funding?
  Dr. Husk came to Salem-Keizer as a seasoned public school administrator.  She had previously served as a teacher, a counselor, the principal of an elementary school, the principal of an alternative middle school, executive director of learning services for a large district, and as Superintendent of Mapleton Public Schools in Colorado.  Sandra Husk earned her doctorate in Administration, Curriculum & Supervision at the University of Colorado, Denver. Previously she had earned a masters degree in Guidance and Counseling, and a bachelors in Elementary Education. 
Please join us for the always lively interaction with Sandra Husk on Friday, February 17, 2012.  Be ready to pose a question for her in the Q & A period following her presentation.  We are honored to have this time with Dr. Husk.  Come be a part of the discussion.  Our program will be held at the Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill in the Dye House.  For lunch reservations email before noon Wednesday, February 15, 2012Parking is free.  Doors open at 11:30 AM.  For more information on this program please go to
