--Roles and responsibilities of charter school boards and ESPs, respectively
--Evaluating school-ESP partnerships at the charter application stage and in operation
--Strengthening charter school governing boards and board oversight

Although Washington, DC is served by three airports, we highly recommend using Reagan National Airport because of its proximity to the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. The hotel offers free shuttle service to and from Reagan National, as well as to and from the Crystal City Metro station (offering quick access to downtown Washington, DC). In addition, cab fares to and from Reagan National are inexpensive.
In the event of cancellation, NACSA will refund the registration fee, less a $25 processing charge, if the cancellation is received in writing before Monday, May 23. No refunds will be made after this date. Participants are responsible for cancellation or change fees charged by the hotel or air carriers.
