INPEC 2018 Conference

This year's INPEC Teacher's conference is going to be awesome. Keynote speakers Rick Wormeli and George Couros along with Kim Strobel and many others make this a conference where we will walk away with a ton of learning and new ideas. They have some new "ignite" sessions (10 minutes) for quick learning and extended "focus" sessions (30 minutes) as well. Make sure to download the Attendify app for your device and get the schedule etc. You can also go the the website by clicking here for conference brochure and more.


Speaking of schedules, the Indiana District is recognizing Jon Mielke at the conference and will be hosting a reception prior to the dinner hour. We'll want to take that into account as we decide our own dinner plans. I am looking forward to having dinner as a faculty that night. It is one of the highlights for me at least.


Hotel and registration are already taken care of for this conference. One person in each hotel room will need to pay for their room. EACS will not reimburse the school for these, only individuals. Keep detailed receipts for food etc and track your mileage (paid @ .38/mile this year) if you are the one driving. I'll get you the needed paperwork and info in October.
