What is CCSA looking for in 2018?

Below are four suggestions which may help increase your chances of having your proposal selected by the programming committee.

1. Align Content with the Conference Mission

The conference mission is:
The California Charter Schools Conference inspires academic excellence, operational integrity and unity among charter schools throughout California.

The conference is for everyone so CCSA is looking for a range of presentations to support charter school professionals in every role and at every level of experience and expertise.

2. Areas of Increased Interest

In response to feedback from attendees, CCSA is also looking for proposals focused on:

3. Inspirational and Unique Content

Do you have a unique practice that you’ve utilized in your classroom or on your campus with impressive results? Do you believe others can benefit from your story? If so, we want to hear from you.

4. Interactive Sessions

If you have a unique point of view on an industry topic and want to explore it with attendees in an interactive, casual environment, submit your proposal as a poster session in one of our Expos. The CCSA programming committee is also looking for proposals for 60-minute breakout sessions that integrate interactive facilitation techniques.

The 25th annual conference will be held March 26–28, 2018 in San Diego, CA at the San Diego Convention Center.
