Federal Programs Conference

September 27-29, 2009 Tan-Tar-A Resort

Conference handouts will be provided to attendees on a jump drive which will significantly reduce the amount of paper distributed onsite.  These jump drives are preloaded and will allow attendees to access handouts on any computer during or post conference. Attendees wishing to access session handouts during the conference should bring their fully charged laptops with them to conference sessions.  For those conference attendees who prefer paper, handouts will be made available by September 23 on the Federal Programs Section webpage at:  Districts can then print the presentations they want to bring with them to the conference.

Remember, the deadline for conference registration is Friday, September 4, 2009.  

Federal Programs leaders and school administrators are encouraged to attend.  Many topics of interest will be covered including school and district improvement, monitoring, Core Data, and financial management.  The conference brochure contains the agenda and registration form and can be found at:
