Regional superintendents’ conference
is June 19 in Springfield

The Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools and the Illinois State Board of Education will host a “Lead, Focus, Connect” conference on June 19 at the Wyndam Centre in Springfield.

Presenters from ISBE, ROEs/ISCs, and other state organizations will provide significant information about ESSA, using inquiry in teaching the sciences, family engagement, licensure, digital learning resources, and other topics.

Five “cool schools” will be featured, nominated by ROE and ISC staff, and chosen for their innovative programs. Representatives of the five schools will be present to provide information, discuss opportunities and challenges, and answer questions. All teachers and administrators are encouraged to attend.

Cost of the event is $75 per participant, which includes lunch. A $10 per person discount will apply for groups of five or more. A block of rooms is available at the Wyndham at the conference rate of $99 per room. To register, visit the sponsor's site.
