We're excited to announce our first keynote speaker for the 2018 National Charter Schools Conference!
2017 National Teacher of the Year
Sydney Chaffee, a humanities teacher at Codman Academy Charter Public School in Boston, MA, is the first charter school educator to be named National Teacher of the Year. Learn more about Sydney here.
The call for proposals for the 2018 National Charter Schools Conference is now open through February 5!
Interested in submitting a proposal? Please visit our Presenter page for more information!
We usually host our call for proposals in September but have moved it to January this year. We hope this gives you the time you need to propose sessions that are engaging and speak to the current issues in education! Additionally, this will narrow the window between idea submission and presentation delivery - a common presenter request.
