CSDC's annual California Charter Schools Leadership Update Conference attracts charter school leaders from across the state seeking the in-depth information, critical content, practical resources, and technical assistance the event is known for.

As we develop the 2022 conference to be held November 13-15 in Sacramento, CSDC is seeking strong, experienced leaders within the charter sector who have insightful, timely, and critical content to share. For the first time in 2022, the CSDC conference will offer content in three formats:

  • Breakout Sessions: 75-minute in-depth sessions on defined, critical topics
  • Extended Workshops: 3-hour sessions for a deep dive into content
  • NEW! Learning Labs: 45-minute sessions hosted in our exhibit hall full of energy, hands-on engagement and opportunities for attendees to interact with their colleagues

Additionally, the 2022 conference will host over 50 sessions, providing an increased opportunity for your proposal to be approved and expanded access to content for attendees. Proposals are due by July 18th and will be reviewed by CSDC’s programming selection committee. Throughout the evaluation process, the committee will review proposals using the criteria outlined below. (For complete review criteria, please click farther below to view the CFP.)

  • Current: aligned with current events and trending issues for the charter sector
  • Unique: tell the story of your school’s journey/lessons learned or provide your distinct perspective and experience working with schools on a critical topic or issue
  • Practical: checklists, templates and other useful tools to aid in real-world implementation
  • Proven: where appropriate, share data on proven outcomes
  • Clear: what will attendees learn as a result of your presentation and/or what is the objective of the session
  • Experienced: Presenter(s) experience and expertise
