South Lane School District Superintendent Krista Parent, named National Superintendent of the Year in 2007, will speak this week at the American Association of School Administrators' National Conference on Education in Tampa, Fla. On Thursday, she'll lead 2008 state superintendents of the year from around the nation in a conversation about "21st Century Public School Leadership," discussing how award-winning superintendents improve.

On Friday, Parent will join three other superintendents on a panel to discuss "Cultivating America's Competitive Edge," and on Saturday she'll conduct a presentation on "Leading Student Learning." In December, Parent will be a juror for the 2009 Brock International Prize in Education.

Head Start students to receive books

Lane County children in Head Start's half-day classrooms will receive books to keep and will benefit from literacy activities under a $10,000 grant from the Cressey Charitable Trust to First Book. First Book's mission is to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.

Head Start of Lane County received 1,520 books in 2007-08. The $10,000 Cressey grant will allow the purchase of another 4,000 books. For information, visit
