New Jersey Charter Schools Conference
The Annual New Jersey Charter Schools Conference is the only annual professional development conference of its kind dedicated to bringing together the entire New Jersey charter school community, including current and future school operators, administrators, teachers, support staff, business officials, board trustees, stakeholders, board attorneys, parents, vendors, and service providers. The NJCSA Conference is an important forum for the charter community to gather and exchange ideas, best practices, and new information with colleagues, policymakers, and stakeholders. The conference provides meaningful coverage on a variety of education topics from policy and governance to leadership and student achievement.
The Conference Continues to Grow
- During the past few years, we’ve welcomed between 700 and 800 registrants plus more than 90 exhibiting companies at each conference. Registrants include not only charter school educators, administrators, board trustees, founders, but also business people, CMO representatives, breakout session presenters, stakeholders, parents and exhibitors.
- About half of all registrants work directly in current or future NJ charter schools. Of them, half were school administrators, founders, leaders or trustees; the other half were classroom teachers, parents or other school support staff.
- We offer more than 50 professional development breakout sessions over the course of two full days (three breakout session time slots per day, averaging 8 options per time slot). Because charter school staff often have varying roles and responsibilities, attendees can attend any session in any track. In general, the tracks are usually identified as Operations, Governance, Use of Data, Leadership and Student Achievement.
- When companies and organizations participate as exhibitors, advertisers and/or sponsors in the annual conference, they gain immediate access to this growing market through face-to-face interactions with charter school educators in a relaxed yet professional environment. We strive to keep a 50/50 mix of business people and educators.
