Have a governance best practice, innovative program or student performance that you’d like to share with your peers? KSBA is now accepting district proposals for workshops that will put your district’s success story in the spotlight, as well as student involvement opportunities, at the association’s annual conference, Feb. 27-March 1 in Louisville.
The two options for proposals are for 75-minute “informational clinics” about district programs and the relevance to school boards and board members, and a limited number of three-hour “skills building sessions,” which should combine lecture and interactive exercises and activities designed to enhance participants’ capacity to use the new knowledge.
Both session types must relate to local school boards, responsibilities and leadership roles. Also, any proposal using corporate proprietary information must be beneficial to each participant, regardless if that person’s board or district uses the firm’s services.
The conference registration fee for one presenter will be waived for those proposals chosen; the proposal form is available online here http://filecabinet7.eschoolview.com/F4F6CCF6-0583-4517-AC34-E033459FC110/Guidelines%20and%20Proposal%20Form%20for%20AC%20workshops%202015.pdf.
Getting students involved is another great way to showcase the talent in your district.
Whether it is providing music during a conference activity, hosting the student-led devotional on Sunday or suggesting your own idea to highlight the youth in your schools we’d love to hear from you. The proposal form for student involvement is available online here http://filecabinet7.eschoolview.com/F4F6CCF6-0583-4517-AC34-E033459FC110/Guidelines%20and%20Proposal%20form%20for%20student%20involvement%202015.pdf.
The deadline for all submissions is Monday, Nov. 10 to Kerri Schelling at KSBA. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Schelling at 800-372-2962 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
