About

The Education Advocates meetings are organized by the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI).  The purpose of these meetings is to build strong relationships with educational partners by: updating them on OPI’s current projects, coordinating educational initiatives, and more importantly working together to serve Montana students.  Representatives from the Governor’s Office, the Legislative Fiscal Division (LFD), the Legislative Services Division (LSD), the Montana Association of School Business Officials (MASBO), the Montana Federation of Public Employees (MFPE), the Montana Quality Education Coalition (MQEC), Montana Rural Education Association (MREA), the Montana School Boards Association (MTSBA), the Office of Commissioner of Higher Education (OCHE), the School Administrators of Montana (SAM), and U.S. Congressional Office Representatives are invited to attend each month.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month.  Exceptions are made for holidays and special circumstances, in which case meeting details will be sent out informing all of the changes.  Meetings begin at 9:30 AM and typically last half an hour.  Due the current COVID-19 pandemic, the meetings are being held via Zoom.  The agenda for each meeting is sent out a week prior to the meeting.  A conference call line is also set up for each meeting for those unable to attend in person.  For more information, please email Virginia Díaz, Administrative Clerk for the OPI or call at 406-444-5643.
