Members of the New Jersey school district teams are invited to attend the NJSBA Spring Education Symposium virtual conference, scheduled for Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13, to learn useful strategies and become more effective school leaders.

Lunch sessions will focus on the latest legal updates from New Jersey School Boards Association attorneys. This past year has been tumultuous and the courts and administrative agencies have decided on a number of cases. With everything else going on, you may have missed important rulings.

NJSBA attorneys will discuss the most recent cases that may impact your district. The other lunch session will be a discussion with the NJSBA Governmental Relations Department on recent enactments, pending legislation, and other education-related developments from the State House.

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. Ask your school business administrator to register your team online as soon as possible.

Symposium topics to be presented include a session on current school law regarding the legalization of  marijuana; 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.
