March's Upbeat Breakfast is sponsored by LAM Christian Academy. Some amazing students from LAM will once again entertain us with eloquent speeches and songs. Don't miss this performance!
The Coeur d'Alene Leadership Program will provide this month's presentation and have selected Dr. Stan Olson the guest speaker.
Dr. Stan Olson is the interim Superintendent of the 10,800-student Coeur d’Alene School District for the current academic year. He assumed this role in July 2017 to provide executive administration to the District while allowing the Board of Trustees time to conduct a comprehensive search for an ongoing Superintendent for the school system. (You will recall that process recently concluded with the Board's selection of Dr. Steve Cook of Colorado, who will join the District on July 1.)
Dr. Olson came out of semi-retirement to Coeur d’Alene after serving 42 years in public education. His experience included serving as Superintendent of Schools in Boise from 2002 to 2010; as Superintendent in Natrona County, Wyoming, from 1997 to 2002; and as an Associate Superintendent in Kalamazoo, Michigan, from 1984 to 1997). His other roles in the education field included that of being a teacher, principal, college adjunct professor, and professional consultant.
After retirement from public school district service, Dr. Olson provided consulting services to numerous organizations and school systems around the country. In 2011, he and a partner formed Silverback Learning Solutions, an educational software firm operating in Idaho and 18 other states. Dr. Olson took a leave of absence from his position with Silverback to serve as Superintendent in Coeur d’Alene.
Dr. Olson and wife, Connie, have been married 46 years. They have two daughters and three grandchildren, all of whom now reside in Boise. His grandchildren miss him, but celebrate the gifts he brings them every two weeks when he visits and does his laundry over the weekend.
