RequiredRequired Question(s)
Thank you for submitting a proposal to present at the 2018 Showcase: Redesigning for Student Success!

The deadline to submit a proposal has been extended to OCTOBER 10 2017

You will be notified by October 31, 2017 if your proposal has been accepted. Presenting schools must confirm their participation by November 15, 2017. Schools not confirming participation will be subject to removal from the program. Acceptance confirmation commits the school to presenting and registering for the Showcase. Final presentation descriptions will be due by December 1, 2017. All presentation materials must be provided by January 20, 2018 so that they may be made available on the Showcase website for all Showcase participants. 

Presenting schools will receive a stipend, based on the distance traveled, to help defer some costs. The stipend may range from $500-$750. Two waived registrations will be extended to adult presenters, and up to two waived registrations will be extended to student presenters from each presenting school. All other members from the presenting school must register according to the established rates for the Showcase. 

If accepted, a member of our team will be available to assist you in preparing for your session, including: answering questions you have about the content of your session; providing information about the format for your session; hosting any materials you may want to share on our event webpage; and ensuring that you have the appropriate AV support. 
Presentations will be held each day of the Showcase. Presentations should be 1-1.5 hours in length. 

Presentations will be organized around the following topics: 1) Advisory Programs; 2) Student Projects; 3) Whole School Redesign; 4) Senior Year Redesign and Senior Year Projects; 5) School-Wide Deeper Learning; 6) House Systems and Smaller Learning Communities; 7) College Prep. and Career Pathway Programs; 8) Four-Year and Four-Year Plus Learning Plans

We are looking for interactive workshops that not only present the WHAT - the nuts and bolts - of the topic, but equally address the HOW - how you were able to achieve success. 

We strongly encourage you to build in student presenters to your workshop format.

Presenting schools must commit to host a roundtable discussion on the final day of the Showcase in order to answer questions and facilitate further discussion.
