The Rowland Foundation

Annual Conference 2011 at UVM

University of Vermont Every fall The Rowland Foundation offers a one-day conference hosted by the University of Vermont. While the conference is open to all educators, the Foundation specifically encourages eight-member teams from Vermont high schools. Team members typically include the principal or head of school, two or three teachers, an additional administrator or two, two students (strongly advised) and a school board member or superintendent.

A keynote address will be delivered by a nationally or internationally known educator, followed by morning and afternoon session workshops facilitated by our Rowland Fellows.

Workshops are space sensitive and will fill quickly. We urge schools to minimally register at least one eight member team (principal, administrators, teachers). Once a team has been determined, we suggest one person be designated to complete the online registration where we ask for all names and workshop selections at the time of registration. We also urge that 2-3 students be added to each eight-person team at the nominal cost of $25 each.

School Team of 8* $1,200
Student Team Member $25
Individual Attendee $275
Keynote Only $75

*All Vermont superintendents are invited to join this conference as guests of The Rowland Foundation if a team is assembled from one of their schools. They must still register as individual attendees.

Schools that preregistered last spring for the early bird price of $1000 per team, must now formally register using the code sent to you by UVM. If you have misplaced your code, please call 802-656-5665. Your space is guaranteed only until October 1.

Conference fee covers keynote address, all workshops, lunch and parking. There is a modest registration fee charged by UVM. Shuttle buses will deliver participants to the conference site. Parking permits will be issued one week prior to the conference.
