We’ve reimagined this year’s spring conference to provide participants with more opportunities to learn together and make headway on their existing efforts. Your team will leave with more connections to similar schools, ideas for the year ahead, and inspiring new ideas to try out.


Each 2022-23 School Program team can send up to 10 attendees for free. We highly encourage multi-stakeholder representation on the team including administration, parents, students, counselors, and teachers.
