The Monterey County Board of Education, the Monterey County School Boards Association and Monterey County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nancy Kotowski hosted the bi-annual Monterey County Education Leadership Summit for newly elected and continuing school district board trustees and their superintendents from Monterey County’s 24 school districts and two community college districts on November 18, 2015 at the Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach.

This unique professional development retreat experience was specifically tailored for Monterey County governance teams and their superintendents to collaborate and prepare for the many changes in education that school districts are facing.

The Education Leadership Summit program included two general sessions and several breakout sessions that were designed to increase the knowledge and capacity of board members to effectively govern their local schools. The keynote addresses during general sessions were given by Dr. Michael Kirst, President, California Board of Education and Dr. Diane Rodriguez, Author and Associate Professor at Fordham University, New York.
