Since 2011, our School Law and Policy Symposium has been a collaborative event, featuring some of NC’s top education attorneys and subject matter experts who have delivered pertinent and timely content outlining legal and policy information that affects every school district throughout our state!
UPDATE MESSAGE FOR THIS EVENT
In the absence of a statewide order limiting indoor gatherings and with all NC school districts now fully operational in serving students, NCASA has decided to move forward with our 2021 School Law & Policy Symposium as an in-person event. We will follow all safety protocols recommended by state health officials and/or required by local governmental orders. All attendees will be required to wear a mask and sign a health screening form at check-in. Those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have had recent exposures, as indicated on that form, should not attend and will not be admitted. Registration also has been capped to allow social distancing to the fullest extent feasible at all times within the meeting facility. All attendees are encouraged to receive a COVID-19 vaccine before the symposium as well as wash or sanitize their hands frequently throughout the event, wear their face mask continuously unless eating, and maintain distance when interacting with others at the symposium. NCASA appreciates cooperation with these protocols to ensure a safe, enjoyable and informative event for all.
