Southeast 2017 District Meetings
Please make it a top priority to attend your ACSI District Meeting this fall (see list below)! You will receive an email invitation from your ACSI District Representative in the near future. There are no costs to attend this gathering, but please RSVP so the host can plan for lunch accordingly. If you have questions regarding a district meeting, please contact the District Representative for your area.
Plan to arrive around 9am for a coffee/fellowship time, then the formal meeting—which has a Socratic seminar style feel to it—goes from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with lunch to follow—also free! This year's topics will include:
- A very important and timely legal legislative emphasis where we will provide real, current examples of ACSI schools who are engaging successfully with cultural (LGBTQ) issues coming in their doors. Leaders will be prompted to consider the issues within these case studies and how they would respond in their own school context.
- Last year, attendees were made aware of the ACSI/Barna 'School Choice' research being conducted. This year we will take a deeper dive into the research findings, and ask school leaders to consider and discuss the implications of these findings in their own context. Providing school leaders with the Barna/ACSI research on school choice will equip them to consider how they can successfully market their schools in the current climate.
