New COVID-19 Update
Due to recent COVID-19 State and Federal mandates, and for the safety of our members and attendees, the 2020 Conference has been postponed to the weekend of April 15 – 18, 2021, at the same location, the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. In this exciting “double” Conference, we will honor both our 2020 Model Schools and our upcoming 2021 Model Schools at the evening Gala on Friday, April 16th. To celebrate the combination of two years of schools and professionals, we’ve booked the historic Midway aircraft carrier for a gigantic dinner celebration on the water. Two years of Professional awards and Exemplary programs will be presented at the Awards luncheon on Saturday, April 17th, in the Harbor Island Ballroom. The Conference workshops, speakers, presentations and programs will still be a part of a packed weekend of events during the new dates, and everyone will have the ability to participate safely. All registrations, tickets and tables purchased in 2020 will be honored and credited automatically for the new dates, with no further action needed. There will be no increase or change in cost to those that have pre-paid, including the awards celebrations and meals. If previously registered for the Conference, you will receive an all-access badge to the 2021 dates. Visit the new Conference page for more details about re-booking hotel reservations, the tentative schedule, nominations for the upcoming 2021 awards, and more as it is announced. The Model School application process will continue during 2020 with a revised deadline schedule, per CDE. To become a 2021 Model School, please complete your “intent to submit” survey by October 15, 2020. The new application schedule and forms for prospective applicants are up now with an instructional webinar. We need your help more than ever: donate today. Read full update
