Due to health concerns relating to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 National Charter Schools Conference in Orlando, FL, has been canceled. Read our latest update on COVID-19 >
We provide thought leadership on the most critical questions on the minds of charter school leaders, engage national experts in solutions-driven content, and consider what’s next in public education.
More than 85% of attendees say what they learn at NCSC applies directly to their jobs and will lead to implementation or positive changes at their schools and organizations.
NCSC’s networking opportunities connect you with peers from across the country who often become valuable resources for referrals and best-practices.

Have you been riding a roller coaster of emotions lately? Are you struggling with your cultural competency? You aren't alone. In this featured session, Dr. Marc Brackett, director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and author of Permission to Feel, will share research-based strategies to support your own and your students' well-being, healthy decision making, relationships, and academic performance in virtual learning environments. A particular focus will be on developing a deeper understanding of the links between social and emotional learning and cultural competence, including strategies to recognize and reduce unconscious biases.
Online learning is emotionally remote. But there are simple tools educators can use to connect to students through content and make them feel connected. Doug Lamov (Uncommon Schools) will explore three key ideas educators can use and adapt to help students learn more during remote instruction and tools that help gather data on student mastery.
