I was a presenter and I was so excited to meet other people in the same field and share experiences. It was awesome.
 It gave the opportunity to sit down with our whole school team in a relaxed atmosphere to discuss our day's events & future plans.  
Connection with colleagues across the state in an informal setting.

Expand your knowledge – learn from the experts:
 There were some very inspiring and informational resources and tools. This will really help lead us into our equity work with individual schools so that we can coach them better about how to use the data and to start having conversations as a school around equity.
 Very informative, specific, and vital information.
I am very interested in restorative justice and really enjoyed that session it is something that I had never heard of before.
All the sessions I attended were useful and I found information that I could apply to my organization. Highlights included alternative education, bias, and sustainability.
This is really helpful information from an excellent presenter.
