About the Conference

Held every fall as charter leaders return to their campuses, CSDC's annual statewide charter conference, the Charter Schools Leadership Update, is designed to provide California's charter school movement with the skills and knowledge it will need to thrive during the school year ahead.

To achieve this goal, CSDC places an emphasis on training, offering a variety of extended trainings and workshops. We schedule dozens of high-quality, no "fluff" breakout sessions. We provide ample formal and informal networking opportunities. And we invite thought-provoking guest speakers to discuss their perspective on the latest, "hot button" charter issues.

Register

Regular registration is open now through October 27, 2017. Rates increase during the late registration period beginning October 28.
