On September 19th at 6:00pm at the Salem Upper Elementary Cafeteria The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education wants to hear from you! We are asking for parent and student feedback about what really matters in Missouri education. At the upcoming Missouri Regional Meeting on Education, small groups will discuss the important role of teachers and ensuring that our students entering kindergarten today are ready for the world they enter in 2029. We look forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas for your child’s education. The Commissioner of Education for DESE, as well as, members of the State Board of Education will be in attendance. We hope to see your there!
