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.

Register now Workshop Descriptions Afternoon Team Time


conf-schedule2016

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. After a team has been filled, students can be added to each eightperson team at the nominal cost of $25 each. Unfortunately, we must limit registration to no more than 2-3 students per school. Schools are strongly encouraged to reserve a trained facilitator for the afternoon team time.

Please note: If you pre-registered a team over the summer, you must still register now (at the early bird registration fee of $1,000 per team). Your space remains guaranteed only until October 1.

2016-fee-schedule

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.

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

Register now!
