Fall Conference Copy

The 2020-2021 School Program will kick off with the Fall Conference, held on both the East and West Coasts. Each participating school will send its multi-stakeholder Challenge Success Team to the day and a half event to draft a vision statement for the year and explore relevant best-practices. Please keep in mind that the team members that attend the conference should be the same team members who will meet regularly throughout the school year to continue this work. 

A Conference Schedule will be released during the summer months.
