2020 Conference has been canceled

Regions 1, 2, 3, 4 ACSA North State Spring Conference – April 24-26, 2020

The Peppermill, Reno, NV

Our North State PD Conference has been canceled. The Peppermill is in the process of canceling all room reservations and you will receive email notification. Due to the current crisis and uncertainty, the conference committee has decided not to reschedule this year’s conference and focus on our 2021 conference to be held in South Lake Tahoe, April 28 to May 2.

As you are aware, I am a one person office, but I will work to get refunds processed as soon as possible. If you paid by credit card in the past 120 days, I will be able to issue a refund to your card. If the charge is over 120 days old or you paid by check (either personal or district) we will be issuing refund checks. If you used a PO, please ask your business departments to cancel the payment if it has not yet been made.

Thanks you for your understanding. We are all going through something unprecedented. May you and your families stay safe during this time.

Phil Boyte

Friday Keynote:  Learning for Living

continent for over thirty years working with school educators in thousands of schools. Phil is the creator of programs such as Link Crew, WEB, and Breaking Down the Walls and wrote the book “School Culture By Design.” Be ready for an action packed and exciting message.

Saturday Lunch Keynote

Wes Smith, Executive Director, ACSA 

Dr. Wesley Smith is executive director of the Association of California School Administrators, the largest school leadership group in the nation. ACSA is foremost a champion for the state’s more than 6 million students. Having served in a variety of school leadership roles, including elementary and middle grades principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent, Dr. Smith understands the intricacies and influences in public education. He believes in a bold new future for ACSA and ensuring it is the most influential voice in public education for years to come. Changes in the standards taught and tested in California, a new school funding formula and the redesign of education accountability systems will require ACSA leadership. Dr. Smith is uniquely poised to lead that charge to protect the present and the future of all students
