KSBA has a limited number of program slots available at its 2015 Winter Symposium (Dec. 4-5 at the Marriott Louisville East) for workshops on topics appropriate to the governance roles and responsibilities of public school board teams. Each workshop is 75 minutes.
During workshops, presenters share their experience, information, knowledge or research about successful programs in their district or topics of critical importance to board members and other education leaders.
Priority for sessions will be given to proposals that reflect these criteria:
MUST relate to local school board team roles, responsibilities and perspectives
Reflect the core work, actions and styles of effective school boards
Identification of what the participants will know and be able to do from attending the session
Support for the topic with appropriate research
Clarity of intent, description, design and learning objectives for the session
Degree of participant involvement, such as interactive discussions and learning activities
Innovation and creativity in presentation content
Proposals received from proprietary companies MUST offer information that will be beneficial to every participant regardless of whether that member’s school district hires the presenter’s company or a competitor. KSBA will not accept proposals for sessions designed to sell a product or service submitted under the guise of professional development.
All presenters must submit a registration form for the conference by or upon acceptance of the proposal. (The conference registration fee will be waived for one presenter per session and is nontransferrable. Fees for meals and pre-conference sessions apply). Presenters are responsible for providing materials.
The deadline for proposals is Sept. 11. Please complete and sign the attached proposal form and return to the attention of:
260 Democrat Drive
Frankfort, KY 40601
The lead presenter of each proposal will be notified of their selection status no later than Oct. 16.
