Sessions •  Our sessions are designed to meet the needs of CESA #4 schools. In the event a presenter or session changes, we will contact registrants via email to communicate about any changes. Sessions are limited by seating and room capacity--thus, our first-come, first served approach to registration. Our best plans to design this learning in advance ensures the best-fit learning for paraprofessionals. Please keep an eye on your email from CESA #4 so you are aware of any changes to sessions that may impact your professional learning.

Seats • Because of our "early bird" registration offering, seats will be secured at a first come, first served basis and seats cannot be held. Registration includes entrance to the two-day event for an individual. If you are unable to attend one of the two days, your district will be charged for both days. Any cancellations must be communicated by August 1, 2023 to allow for appropriate planning and adjustments.
