The 2019 WASDA Annual Educational Conference is designed to support your capacity to address critical issues in your role as Superintendent. Topics have been chosen by your Professional Development Committee based on data from WASDA’s recent comprehensive member survey and the identified priority interests of Superintendents. Program strands include:

  • Achieving Equity
  • Human Resource Development
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Relevant Legal and Agency Updates
  • Direct Superintendent Support Services

You will hear from peers, local, state and national experts on the subjects demanding your attention in your district. Keynote sessions will highlight issues of equity, literacy and state-level status of Wisconsin’s biennial budget development and proposed school funding. In addition, more than 30 breakout sessions will provide in-depth examination of strategies and practices that have achieved success in critical areas of interest.

Enjoy the opportunity to learn and network with your colleagues while celebrating the careers and accomplishments of many who have committed themselves to adding value to the lives of Wisconsin school children in our public schools.
