St. Peter Sup’t In Washington DC 12 Feb 13

St. Peter Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Olson is attending tonight’s (TUE) State of the Union Address in Washington, DC with Southern Minnesota Congressman Tim Walz. Dr. Olson says he was thrilled to be invited after spending 16 years as a government teacher. He calls it one of those “bucket list” kind of things to have an opportunity to hear the president address Congress and the country. Olson says that there are several topics he hopes the president addresses that effect school districts in the local area, including school safety, reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act, special education funding and repairing aging school infrastructure. Olson is the 2013 Minnesota Superintendent of the Year.
