Day 99: Nampa

State superintendent Debbie Critchfield hit the road early for a thirty minute drive from Boise to the Northwest Nazarene University campus in Nampa for the third of six stops along her post-legislative roadshow.

Before kicking off the event with opening remarks, she sat down for an interview with EdNews reporter Sadie Dittenber to discuss her first 100 days in office — more on that tomorrow.

She then addressed a crowd of region 3 administrators and educators, recapping the legislative session and answering questions about the bills that passed, and didn’t pass.

Check out reporter Carly Flandro’s story for more details on the roadshow presentation.

Thursday marked the final roadshow event this week, but she’ll be back at it Monday, for the fourth event in Twin Falls.

Around lunchtime, the superintendent headed back to Boise, where she held a one-on-one meeting with State Department of Education communications director, Scott Graf. That was followed by a meeting to prepare for next week’s Land Board meeting (with assistance from her Land Board advisor Carl Crabtree).

She wrapped up Thursday with an afternoon meeting on school finance.

Tomorrow is Day 100. Check back for the last blog post — a review of Critchfield’s legislative successes and obstacles, and a look into what’s coming next.
