Registration Link to the 2018 CASS / ASBOA Summer Learning Conference is now open

 

It is with great excitement that we inform you that the registration link for the first ever, province wide, CASS / ASBOA Summer Learning Conference is now live.

A link to the Conference web page is https://cassalberta.ca/conferences-workshops/cass-asboa-summer-learning-conference/.

 

On the page you will find the link to register, an updated schedule for the Conference, as well as a tab for a page that provides descriptions of the professional learning modules that will be offered at the Conference.

 

Updated Information

Guest Rooms

The Delta Hotels Kananaskis Lodge has been completely renovated and re-branded / renamed the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge.

 

This change does not impact any guest room reservations that have been made. The conference rate will continue to be honoured.

 

The John Palliser Lodge has also been renamed and is now under ownership separate from the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge. This change has not impacted reservations made and the conference rate will continue to be honoured.

 

Delegates who have made reservations at the John Palliser Lodge should have received communication directly from the new owners confirming that their reservations will continue to be honoured.

 

The block of rooms reserved by CASS has been sold out. It is anticipated that as jurisdiction teams register for the Conference, some rooms may be released.

 

If you would like to make reservations, or add to your reservation block, please contact Ingrid Piecha (Ingrid.piecha@cass.ab.ca) who has a wait list. CASS has been assured by the hotel that any cancelled reservations will be held for CASS until July 14, and Ingrid will be notifying those on the wait list when openings develop.

 

Registration Fee

The registration fee for the Summer Learning Conference is $630 (includes gst), which is in line with other CASS Professional Learning Events, taking into account that the Summer Learning Conference is one full day longer than other events.

The registration fee includes:

  • Full breakfasts for delegates for the three days of the conference
  • Lunch for the delegates on Aug 15
  • Refreshment breaks for the three days of the conference

  • Transportation to and from Boundary Ranch on Aug 16
  • Delegates may purchase additional BBQ tickets (at cost) for family members when registering.

Purchase of additional tickets includes transportation to and from Boundary Ranch for the family members, and tickets to the Live Performance that will follow the BBQ.

    • Costs for additional tickets are:         
      • Adult (18 & over) - $55.00
      • Youth (7 – 17) - $25.00
      • Child (6 and under) – Free
  • Note – Initially it had been anticipated that the registration fee would include breakfasts for family members. Logistical and cost implications have unfortunately made it impossible to do so.

 

Professional Learning Modules

A description of each of the Professional Learning Modules offered at the Conference is available by clicking the ‘Module Description’ tab on the Conference web page. This tab is now available. Delegates are encouraged to review the descriptions prior to registering for the Conference.

 

Each professional learning module will be restricted to a maximum of 40 participants, therefore CASS and ASBOA members are encouraged to register for the Conference as soon as they are able to.

 

Depending upon the number of registrants, a decision will be made to possibly offer some of the Modules to two groups of delegates. 

 

Jurisdiction Leadership Teams will have to decide whether they wish to register for one Module as a team or have each Team Member register for different Modules.

 

One hour of pre-Conference Reading will be required for each Module. During the Conference there will be 11 hours of Facilitated Learning, and the Module participation will conclude during the CASS Fall Pre-Conference scheduled for November 7, 2018, during which time each cohort will meet, with cohort members summarizing how s/he has actionized the learning in her/his respective school authority.

 

ASBOA Members will be able to include completion of a Professional Learning Modules towards their respective professional learning record.

 

A registry will be created for CASS members, acknowledging completion of this and future Professional Learning Modules as part of a Continuing Education Framework.
