2024 symposium

Altitude is important at every level of schools, from the board to the leadership team to the teachers, coaches, advisors, and caretakers. In our organizations, we need to all be able to operate at a high level - getting above things; at a mid-range level - keeping initiatives moving; and at a details level - figuring specific things out. Altitude is more than just seeing the big picture.

At this year’s CESA Symposium, we will be challenged to consider how and when we need to change altitude to ensure our leadership strategy is meeting the current and future needs of our schools.  We hope your team will join us in at the Omni Interlocken outside of Denver on October 6-8, 2024!
