Following the success of NJSBA’s Virtual Workshop 2020 event, the Spring Education Symposium will feature more than 40 online sessions. The event will take place Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13.

Members of the New Jersey educational community are invited to attend this virtual conference to gain useful strategies and become more effective school leaders.

“The NJSBA Spring Education Symposium will bring New Jersey educators together to discuss the latest issues and explore new solutions to the complex challenges they are facing this year,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA’s executive director. “It is our goal to give our members the information and resources they need to successfully address school safety and student achievement during the pandemic.”

Symposium topics related to current school law regarding the new marijuana legislation, sound business operations, effective use of social media for community relations, and IT security are just a few of the sessions that will be presented. Others areas include social and emotional learning, special needs instruction and student learning loss due to the pandemic. Board members will have the opportunity to receive Board Member Academy credits, Qualified Purchasing Agent credits (Pending), and Continuing Education Facilities credits (Pending).

Participants will have the opportunity to interact during sessions and access course information for up to 30 days after the event.
