State Superintendent Forum

Please join us and our co-host, the Santa Clara County Office of Education, on Saturday, September 27, for a candidate forum for the position of State Superintendent. John Fensterwald of EdSource will be the moderator. Superintendent Torlakson and Candidate Tuck will participate. The forum will be held at the Marriott Waterfront in Burlingame near SFO.

The Forum begins at 9am and will be followed by a reception at 10am where attendees will have an opportunity to meet the candidates. This event leads into our Fall Conference; please consider staying for the conference (you can RSVP for the conference here but you must RSVP for both if you are attending both). You must RSVP to attend the candidate forum, though the forum is free.

The State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI) is the nonpartisan elected executive officer of the California Department of Education. The SPI directs all functions of the Department of Education and executes policies set by the California Department of Education. Superintendents serve four-year terms, serve as the state’s chief spokesperson for public schools, provide education policy and direction to local school districts, and also serve as an ex officio member of governing boards of the state’s higher education system.
