Opening Session & Keynote
All conference attendees are invited to a special General Session Friday morning. The session will conclude with the Keynote address, presented by Delaine Eastin. Get there early, as space is limited.


Delaine Eastin served as the California State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI) for eight years from 1995 to 2003, the first and only woman in history elected to that position. As an elected constitutional officer, Delaine managed more than 40% of the California budget and oversaw the education of 6.1 million children. While serving as SPI, she advocated for universal preschool, full day mandatory kindergarten, reduced class size in K­3, better technology and more hands on learning, a restoration of arts and career and technical education, school gardens and improved nutrition for children, school libraries and a longer school year, state academic standards and assessments aligned to those standards. She was the architect of the first Net Day, an electronic barn raising, copied in 40 states and 40 countries. She also advocated for and achieved parallel A-G standards for attendance at the University of California and California State Universities. Prior to serving as SPI, Delaine served 8 years in the California State Assembly where she chaired several committees including the Education Committee. She authored what was the largest school bond in history and put higher education and K­12 education together in that bond for the first time. She also authored legislation to provide for better financial oversight of schools and a host of other educational improvements.

After retiring as SPI, Delaine was the first Executive Director of the National Institute for School Leadership in Washington, DC and then a Distinguished Visiting Professor of Educational Leadership at Mills College in Oakland. She now does speaking and consulting. A native Californian, Delaine is an avid reader, gardener, cook, traveler and advocate for children. She serves on a number of boards that support the education, nutrition, health and civic engagement of children from preschool to college. She is Chair of ClosetheGap.CA to elect more women to the
legislature in 2014 and 2016. She also serves on the board of Capital Public Radio. Delaine holds a BA from UC Davis and an MA from UC Santa Barbara. Delaine has been honored to have had named in her honor a school in Union City, a Child Development Center in Fremont and a student art gallery at Healdsburg High School.
