Dear BAEO Supporters,
We have been invited to the National Charter Schools Conference sponsored by The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota from June 19-22, and we're going to be there!!
Now is the time for us to continue to show our support and solidarity as an organization and as advocates for educational choice by attending this educational and very worthwhile event.
The conference is a great opportunity for professional development, learning best practices and networking with other school leaders who face the same challenges as you. Register today to receive up to $130 in discounts off of a full-price registration. Registration fees will increase on May 31. Enter our affiliate code "BAEO" and receive an additional 10% off of your registration fee. Register today to receive these awesome discounts and more importantly reserve your spot at the National Charter Schools Conference. The education YOU will receive will be immeasurable!
The theme of this year's conference is "20 Years of Innovation: Proving the Possibilities", highlighting the 20th anniversary of the first charter school, while giving conference attendees the opportunity to reflect on how far the charter school movement has come, as well as where it is going. As we stated, the conference is being held in Minnesota, the first state to pass a charter law, in order to celebrate this milestone.
And if just being in the room with great minds and educators in more than 100 workshop sessions isn't exciting enough for you to come, maybe a keynote address by Bill Cosby and Deborah Kenny will be!
The conference isn't just about work - come along and play at the welcome reception at Target Field, watch local student performances, and explore the School of the Future in the Exhibition Hall!
