LASE Update 1/19/2016

REGULAR FEBRUARY 5TH LASE MEETING CANCELED IN FAVOR OF CASE HYBRID!

Please remember that our regular LASE meeting scheduled for February 5th has been canceled.


Instead we have Springfield Schools along with Sponsors (Rethink & SpedTrack) who will be hosting the CASE Hybrid conference on February 11-12. Registration and lunch is being provided at no cost!


The CASE Hybrid is a wonderful opportunity to check into what is going on at a national level and have some discussions about the impact on us locally. I would encourage each of you to come to the Hybrid conference for one day or if possible both days. Details and a registration link is included below. You will need to RSVP as soon as possible to allow for meal planning.


REGISTER ASAP FOR THE CASE HYBRID CONFERENCE! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CASEWinterHybrid


The conference will be held at SPS's new office building located at 1610 East Sunshine on the south side of the road. It is just east of Grove Spa and Oxford Health Care between Oxford and a Phillips 66. It is across the street from Hogan Land and Title. The building is tan, two story and easy to miss as there is not a sign up at this time – hence the landmarks provided!


Here is a link to the conference agenda indicating topics and speakers for both days!

Handouts for Hybrid sessions will be sent electronically to those registering as they become available (please note that paper copies won't be available at the site).


We hope to see you for the CASE Winter Hybrid! Contact Amy Phipps for any further info - aphipps@spsmail.org
