The Department is hosting multiple state-wide Education Focus Group meetings to determine what educators need to help educate our youth as it relates to our mission. The focus groups will target K-12 youth through formal and non-formal/informal education efforts. Therefore, we are seeking formal and non-formal/informal adult educators to attend our focus groups. The adult educators could include anyone that would have a role in what our youth are learning. Your input will help provide direction to the Department and help us serve you in the best way possible.

The following provides the remaining locations, dates and times of the focus group meetings. Also, if you are a leader in an organization or know people that would be interested in attending one of our focus group meetings please pass this Email and registration information on to them.

Cape Girardeau - August 8, 2013 at the Cape Girardeau Public Library, 711 N Clark, Cape Girardeau, MO, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Due to low registration, this meeting will be held as an online meeting using AdobeConnect.
