New Jersey Charter Schools Association
Since 2009, the New Jersey Charter Schools Association has proudly hosted the only professional development conference dedicated to bringing together the entire New Jersey charter school community, including current and future school operators, administrators, teachers, support staff, business officials, board trustees, stakeholders, board attorneys, parents, vendors, and service providers. The Annual Conference is an important forum for the charter community to gather and exchange ideas, best practices, and new information with colleagues, policymakers, and stakeholders. Our breakout sessions are designed to address the needs of New Jersey charter school teachers, directors and stakeholders, in which they can discuss their challenges, explore innovative solutions and celebrate resounding triumphs.
During the past few years, we’ve welcomed between 700 and 900 registrants plus 50 exhibiting companies at each conference. Registrants include not only charter school educators, leaders, SBAs, principals, board trustees, founders, but also business people, CMO representatives, breakout session presenters, stakeholders, parents and exhibitors.
About half of all registrants work directly in current or future NJ charter schools. Of them, half were school administrators, founders, leaders or trustees; the other half were classroom teachers, parents or other school support staff.
We offer 20 professional development breakout sessions specifically curated to deliver the latest information & innovations to charter school educators & operators. Because charter school staff often have varying roles and responsibilities, attendees can attend any session in any track. In general, the tracks are usually identified as Operations, Advocacy, Leadership and Student Achievement.
When companies and organizations participate as exhibitors, advertisers and/or sponsors in the annual conference, they gain immediate access to this growing market through face-to-face interactions with charter school educators in a relaxed yet professional environment. We strive to keep a 50/50 mix of business people and educators.
