The State of the Irvine Schools

by Mody Gorsky

Our speaker this Wednesday will be Gavin Huntley-Fenner, Ph.D. from the Irvine Unified School Board. Gavin joined the Irvine Unified School Board in 2005. His doctorate is in Brain and Cognitive Sciences from MIT and his research involves language and mathematics learning. He is the parent of two children, both of whom are currently in the district. He is an accomplished and effective board member and a recognized leader on the local, statewide and national level.

Gavin served as an Irvine Unified school board trustee since 2005. He served as Board President (2008-2009), and Board Clerk/Vice President (2007-2008). Gavin will discuss the "State of the Irvine Schools." He will be speaking about where we are now and some upcoming challenges and plans. Although he is currently running for re-election, he promised to not make it a "campaign" speech.
