State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister announced that the summer EngageOK conference in Oklahoma City, scheduled for July 19-21, has been cancelled, according to a notice on the conference website.
I do not need to tell you that common education, like all state-funded entities, has faced a brutal budget year in FY 2016, and more challenges are ahead in the next. The only unknown at this point is the degree to which we will see our funding reduced. With budget considerations foremost in mind, we regret to announce that the conference will not take place this July in Oklahoma City as originally planned.
Instead, the conference will be rescheduled as a series of regional conferences for July 2016. Specific dates have not been announced.
