CENTENNIAL, Colo.September 8, 2020 — A mix of school district administrators, from both large and small school districts in the western United States, are coming together on September 16, 2020 (virtually, of course!) to share how their districts are fighting to stay healthy during the pandemic.

The administrators will specifically discuss the physical, mental and financial well-being of their district employees and families and what their district is doing to help combat the effects of the pandemic. Panelists will also share insights and strategies developed in response to the crisis resulting in healthier employees and students.

Participating administrators include Dr. Lisa Gonzales, Chief Business Officer, Mt. Diablo School District in Northern California, Dr. Frank Miranda, Ed.D, Superintendent of the Colton Joint Unified School District in Southern California, Michael J. Ramirez, Deputy Superintendent of Schools for Denver Public Schools in Colorado, and Nora Gutierrez, Superintendent for the Tolleson Union High School District in Arizona. The panel discussion will be led by Tom Davis, Director of Business Development at the Center for Educational Innovation (CEI).
