Day 97: Tour kickoff

State superintendent Debbie Critchfield headed out early Tuesday morning to kick off day one of her post-legislative tour.

She headed to the Idaho National Laboratory campus in Idaho Falls to talk with education leaders in Region 6.

While in East Idaho, Critchfield took the opportunity Tuesday to meet with the Fort Hall Business Council — the governing body of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.

She later held a virtual meeting with staff from the State Board of Education — Executive Director Matt Freeman and Chief Planning and Policy Officer Jenn Thompson, along with State Board President Kurt Liebich.

She’s heading to Pocatello Tuesday night in anticipation for day 2 of the tour, which will take place on the Idaho State University Campus.
