Being an authorizer comes with an important responsibility—ensuring all children in your community have access to a high-quality public education that will meet their needs. Upholding the charter bargain becomes especially challenging when navigating critical equity and access issues. Join NACSA and your peers for an interactive day-and-half workshop designed to push your thinking and oversight related to special education, English learners, student discipline, and enrollment practices. You’ll leave this event reinvigorated to demonstrate leadership and with the tools to empower you to ensure that all kids in your community have equal opportunities to attend a great school.

Participation in this event is limited to authorizers only. The maximum participants we can accommodate for this event is 25.
