ASCD Annual Conference & Exhibit Show - Houston, TX

I think I can swing the finances to take a small team to the ASCD Annual Conference in Houston in March. This would be an intensive experience with several days of sessions and post-session discussions and planning among our contingent that would lead to longer-term implementation back in the district related to grading and reporting especially. For those that have never attended a national conference like this before, there will be plenty for time for fun too!

General itinerary:

March 18 - Depart from Newark Airport

March 19-20 - Pre-Conference - Leading the Way to More Effective Grading and Reporting with Tom Guskey

March 21-23 - Conference, Depart

The district would pay for registration up front, but each individual would need to track expenses (including airfare) and seek reimbursement upon returning. I'll be going through that process as well and the team will do all of the paperwork and planning together.

If you are interested in attending, please let me know by the end of the day on Thursday, January 8.
