Why You Should Attend This Conference

This is the only Conference that allows California schools to hear the latest information about current State, Regulatory, and Federal issues in real-time.

The California State Legislature has passed, or attempted to pass, a number of bills that would limit or close schools. You must know what is coming and how to help keep your schools in operation.

We have a new Governor and many new Legislators. You should know who these new Legislators are, and how you can successfully interact with them.

There will be an opportunity on Tuesday afternoon (April 9) to visit the Capitol (with another school or by yourself) and talk to the Legislators in your district.

We are living in a new time of unconstrained policy ambitions. You may not want to hear about where our State is headed, but it is critical that you do so.
