Would you like to create a culture of ethical leadership on your school board? Do you want to learn about the latest indoor air quality methods to safeguard against COVID-19? These topics are among  more than 40 course offerings that will be offered through NJSBA’s first Spring Education Symposium.

Members of the New Jersey educational community are invited to attend this virtual conference, scheduled for Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13, to gain useful strategies and become more effective school leaders.

“The NJSBA Spring Education Symposium will bring New Jersey education leaders 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 provide the necessary information and resources needed to successfully address school safety and student achievement during the pandemic.”

The symposium is open to school board members and charter school trustees, superintendents, business administrators, facilities managers, IT and curriculum directors, and other administrative/supervisory staff. The fee is $50 per person.

Symposium topics to be presented include a session on current school law regarding the new marijuana legislation; sound business operations; effective use of social media for community relations; and IT security. Other sessions at the symposium will include social and emotional learning, special needs instruction and student learning loss due to the pandemic.

The Spring Education Symposium is a user-friendly event that will allow attendees to watch livestream sessions securely without having to download a separate program. Participants will have the opportunity to interact during sessions and access course information for up to 30 days after the event.
