Al Mijares, County Superintendent of Schools, to Address League of Women Voters
The public is invited to join with the League of Women Voters of Central Orange County in hearing from Al Mijares, our Orange County Superintendent of Schools, speak on Wednesday, February 19 at 11:30 am at China Palace on Newport Avenue in Tustin.
Brenda Davis of North Tustin, Program Co-Chair for the Central Orange County Area League of Women Voters, said, “The League is open to men and women and encourages informed and active participation in government. Our schools are facing a completely new funding formula from the state, implementing the Common Core standards, and new testing methods all while technology changes our economy and children’s needs faster than ever. The League offers us the opportunity to discuss these matters with Dr. Mijares, who is setting policies governing the half million children in our county’s public schools.”
Dr. Mijares was appointed Orange County Superintendent of Schools in August 2012. Prior to that time he served for six years as the Vice President of the College Board and 11 years as superintendent of the Santa Ana Unified School District. He is also a Foothill High School alumni parent and Tustin Unified School District resident.

The cost for lunch is $15 ($13 for League members). For reservations contact Brenda Davis at 714.665.9591 or at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> .
