Conference Agenda

More than 400 of you responded to our survey, and this year’s conference is specifically designed to cover the topics you board members, school leaders, and teachers asked us to cover. 

After reviewing proposals for break-out sessions from educational leaders in North Carolina and around the country, here is a listing of what we have planned at this year’s conference. Breakout sessions will feature many state leaders in education discussing the future directions for N.C. as well as issues relating to finance, administration, instruction, marketing, legal, facilities, boards, teachers and principals.
