Recognizing the Value of Every Student
These words represent the theme of Workshop 2016, and much more. In fact, they go to the heart of our work at the New Jersey School Boards Association, and they reflect our mission—to advance the achievement of all students through effective school district governance.
Workshop plays an important role in fulfilling that mission through the training of New Jersey’s local school board members, administrators, curriculum directors, technology professionals, and school facility managers. For 2016, we want to build the skills and knowledge of your district team through professional development in negotiations, school law, policy, curriculum, technology, STEAM education, sustainability, and other areas vital to school district governance. Workshop 2016 will also feature hundreds of exhibits to help you make sound and practical decisions on the products, services and technological upgrades your district needs.
You have a critical role in our nation’s future by ensuring that our schools have the tools and leadership that will enable our students to succeed. Workshop 2016 will offer training and resources to help you reach that goal.
I look forward to your participation in Workshop 2016, which will be held October 25-27.
