2014 Back-to-School Leadership Conference Registration!
All are welcome. Bring your team!
Make plans now to attend the 2014 Back-to-School Leadership Conference. Our agenda will inform and inspire you as you anticipate the new school year. Our program will include global and local perspectives on leading positive futures for all of our students. We will hear from MDE leaders on a variety of topics affecting your district, but this year with a spin – or rather a flip! A number of our MASA members have asked for more time for discussion and Q&A with the MDE presenters, so we will be flipping our breakout sessions. Once the link is received from MDE, participants will receive online access information to view presentations prior to the conference, and breakouts will focus on discussion rather than presentation. Concurrently, an unconference will allow participants to frame their own discussion groups around whatever topic they choose. Don’t miss this energizing way to get in gear for 2014-15. Click Here and Register Today!
PLEASE NOTE: The Back to School Conference has been designed to be compatible with the agenda for the FinnFest Education Forum August 6-7 in Minneapolis.
