No matter how character education has evolved in your school, growth and sustainability are bound to concern you. Our State and National Schools of Character realize that earning these recognitions is just the beginning, and not the end of their
journey. NJASECD’s 2017 Annual Conference on May 19, 2017 at Rider University will focus on helping schools develop and sustain successful and replicable practices, strategies, and programs for character education. These strategies will help schools prepare for and overcome the inevitable obstacles encountered as your programs move forward in exciting ways.
The conference will feature a panel discussion among principals who have built lasting character education programs in their respective schools. Their stories will highlight how their schools have kept character alive and growing. Come and learn how to maintain a school focus on character education as well as innovative ways of funding, outreach, school and community involvement, and service learning.
