The governor is scheduled to attend the July 19 networking reception to visit with school board members. The “Summer Camp for School Boards” runs July 19-21 in Bend with a variety of workshops for school district leaders.
In May, Brown triumphantly signed the Student Success Act, a historic and long-sought investment in schools, and has touted it as one of 2019’s key legislative accomplishments. The act is expected to generate $1 billion a year for education through a new business tax, starting in 2020.
