The Department encourages districts and public charter schools to bring leadership teams to participate in the Post-Legislative Tour. Teams can include the local superintendent/charter school administrator, a school board member, teacher leader, business manager, building leader, or technology director. The Department will cover the cost of up to five (5) team members per district or charter. Any additional participants will need to register for a fee. We understand if not every district can bring a full team due to budget constraints, but strongly encourage it. Each team should bring at least one laptop or other computing device.
