High-quality, relevant, and engaging content is of the utmost importance. We are currently accepting presentation submissions covering a variety of topics that are important to our charter schools.

Presentation topics should relate to best practices to promote quality schools; specifically, strategies focused on implementing effective curriculum, instruction, assessment, leadership, operations, and finance as well as general topics related to enrollment/recruitment, parent engagement, school climate and culture, etc.

Sessions will be offered from 60-75 minutes and presenters are responsible for their own materials and preparation.
