Roadtrip Nation: Define your own road in life!
These folks will be speaking at the annual CLHS and CLMS conferences. Their amazing program helps students answer the question "what do I want to do with my life?" It's for students "interested in exploring the world outside their comfort zone, talking with individuals who chose to define their own road in life, and sharing their experiences with our generation." Very cool.

I also shared this opportunity with colleagues elsewhere and thought it would be good to share it with you here as well:
Hello again, colleagues. I’m once again pinging you on behalf of the California League of Schools, which is moving to pull together promotional material for the California League of High Schools (CLHS) annual conference January 15 – 17 (in Monterey) and the California League of High Schools (CLHS) annual conference February 25 – 28 (in Sacramento). They generally like to include some “typical sessions” in the registration brochure and it would be fantastic to highlight any of you who might be interested in presenting in the “tech strand” at each event. We will have a hands-on lab (or two) available at each event, but there is also an opportunity to do a more traditional presentation if you like. There is no compensation for this other than recognition in the program, but I hope that many of you in the area will submit a session. :)
If you’d be interested, please reply and fill out one or both of the forms below.
Incidentally, the CLHS conference will focus on Marzano’s instructional strategies that work – and on response to intervention (RtI), so if there’s anyway to incorporate either of those into your session descriptions, that’d be great (but not necessary). I don’t know of any such theme for CLMS yet.
Let me know if you have any questions – and thank you in advance for considering this.
I hope that some of you might take me up on this. :)
I just posted this message to some list-servs I belong to and thought I’d share it here in case someone in my wider network might be able to help:
Hello, colleagues. On behalf of the non-profit California League of Schools (CLMS, CLHS, and now CLES), I’m looking for a friendly school district (or other institution) in the Monterey, CA area that might be willing to provide a laptop lab for the CLHS annual conference January 15-18. Please let me know if you (or any of your colleagues) might be able to help. Thank you in advance for your help.
Also, I’m looking for a similarly friendly district (or two) in the Sacramento area to provide a laptop lab for the CLMS annual conference February 25-28. Again, let me know if you (or any of your colleagues) might be able to help, and thank you in advance for your help.
Leave a comment below or email me if you might be able to help. Thanks again.
