The U.S. Department of Education has chosen Vancouver to host one of 12 Future Ready Regional Summits scheduled across the nation in the coming months. The purpose of the summit is to help school district leaders use technology to improve teaching and student learning.

The special public meeting will be at 3 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Jim Parsley Center board room, 2901 Falk Road. An executive session will be held with possible action to follow.
