Registration is open for NJSBA’s first Spring Education Symposium, which will take place virtually on May 12 and 13, 2021. Following the success of NJSBA’s Virtual Workshop 2020 event, the Spring Education Symposium will feature more than 40 online sessions.

“Despite challenges created by the pandemic, NJSBA continues to provide indispensable training and information for New Jersey’s school leaders,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA’s executive director. “The Spring Education Symposium is a valuable opportunity to explore what has worked and what has not in terms of remote learning, facilities management, and school board administration. By sharing ideas, we can chart a successful course for the future.”

About NJSBA Spring Education Symposium The Symposium consists of timely sessions for school board members, superintendents, business administrators, IT directors, facilities managers, curriculum directors, and charter school trustees.

The user-friendly, Web-based technology for the event lets participants watch livestream sessions securely without having to download a separate program. You can chat with other attendees, interact during sessions, and access program information.

Connecting Matters More Than Ever The timing for the event is ideal, as many schools are still coping with stress from the pandemic and are eager to discover solutions on moving forward. The event will also allow school leaders to talk about how to manage existing and future government pandemic funding.

Aside from pandemic-related issues, the event gives school leaders pertinent information about the latest advancements in the field of education. This is important, as there have been developments in the education arena during the past year that some leaders would like to know more about.

Benefits of a Virtual Event Hosting the event virtually offers many advantages. Attendees can connect with others without having to take additional precautions such as social distancing and masking.

Additionally, participants will be able to access all of the presentations for 30 days after the event. This means that you can listen to additional sessions and gain even more knowledge long after the event is over. NJSBA made presentations available to Workshop 2020 participants after the event, which are still online. The on-demand format was well-received, which is why it’s being used again.

  • Virtual Learning
  • Learning Loss Mitigation/Educational Practices
  • School Facilities
  • Cyber/School Security
  • SEL/Mental Health
  • Special Education
