CASS is in the final stages of planning the 2017 Annual Learning Conference (March 8-10) that will include Minister Eggen, Chris Kennedy from West Vancouver, Dr. Santiago Rincon-Gallardo (a member of Michael Fullan's Associates) and thought leaders from the universities of Lethbridge, Calgary and Alberta. The format for this year is a team leadership academy, allowing system leadership teams prepare for the implementation of professional practice standards for teachers, principals and superintendents. The Standards are in draft form and it is anticipated they will be formally announced later this spring, with a September 1, 2018 date for proclamation.
