Dale Frost leads state-level policy work for iNACOL. He recently came to iNACOL after having served as one of the leading education policy-makers in Arizona, having worked with all aspects of state-level policy from state budgets to legislation to state regulations.
As the Director of the Arizona Governor’s Office of Education Innovation, he influenced statewide actions on improving schools’ access to enhanced broadband technologies and schools’ readiness for administering online content and assessments. As Governor Brewer’s Education Policy Advisor, Dale wrote and influenced landmark legislation in early literacy, performance-based funding, standards and assessments, and teacher and school leader evaluations. He has developed strong relationships with other state policy-makers, particularly those in other governor’s offices, throughout the states.
Before serving in a policy capacity, Dale served as a senior budget analyst for Arizona overseeing the executive budgets for multiple agencies including higher education and school capital finance. In addition to Arizona, Dale has worked for state and local governments in California and Utah.
