NACSA Annual Conference - Debriefing

Mark your calendars NOW for October 23-24, 2006, in San Diego, CA.

2005 Annual Conference De-Briefing



The National Association of Charter School Authorizers held our 2005 Annual Conference, October 24-25, 2005 at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, CO.

The conference was a great success. We are grateful for the efforts of more than one hundred facilitators -- including authorizers, researchers, policy experts, U.S. Department of Education officials, and other education professionals -- who encouraged thoughtful reflection and participation in a wide variety of sessions related to charter schools in general and authorizers in particular.

THANK YOU!
A special thanks to our sponsors
