About the Annual State Conferences
CASCWA is an organization comprised of practitioners and educational experts who are dedicated to improving school climate, safety, increasing school attendance, reducing chronic absenteeism, increase graduation rates, and addressing social justice inequities. We have established ourselves as the State leaders in professional development in the area of Student Services.
Each year we come together for our annual state conference and bring together experts in specific fields relating to Student Services. Our Southern Section Executive Board Members have been working diligently for the past two years preparing for the next conference. We sincerely hope that all conference attendees will find the topics to be meaningful and important in their professional careers. Our next conference will be at the Bahia Resort Hotel in beautiful Mission Bay of San Diego, California. Below you will see information that was planned for the 2020 CASCWA State Conference that was cancelled. This will be updated in July of 2020.
Our conference will focus on six key areas. The areas quickly became the strands that link the conference presentations to the main areas of interest of our conference attendees. The names of the strands for this year's conference are:
CLIMATE & CULTURE
SAFE SCHOOL PLAN
CULTURAL COMPETENCE & EQUITY
WELLNESS AND HEALTH
ATTENTION TO SUBGROUPS
We all recognize that the number one reason why our members and friends attend our conferences is for the presentation delivered from the experts in our student services fields. There is so much to know and it is important to be up to date professionally. We are always amazed at the questions and answers shared at the sessions. We also witness the professional connections that take place that in many cases remain for a lifetime (please note that the presenters and daily schedule are subject to change.)
