There’s still time to register for the CCBE Annual Conference Sept. 10–12 at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey. With both in-person and virtual options, this conference is specifically designed to address the issues unique to county offices of education and the students they serve. Both board members and county superintendents can also benefit from the learning opportunities at this inspiring event.

One of the conference themes will focus on increasing access to computer science education for underserved students. On Sunday, Sept. 12, the keynote will be delivered by Dr. Allison Scott, CEO of the Kapor Centerand Julie Flapan, from the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies and co-director of CSforCA. Their presentation will be followed by a panel discussion including two CS education leaders from COEs: Kat Goyette, Educational Technology and Integrated Studies staff development and curriculum specialist with the Tulare COE, and Stephen Callahan, STEM programs coordinator with the San Joaquin COE.

In person or remotely, the registration fee is $399. Starting Sept. 6, the registration fee increases to $449.

The Saturday afternoon luncheon and keynote plenary session will be held outdoors for the first time to take advantage of the lovely grounds at the Hyatt. Stanford University psychiatry and behavioral sciences professors Dr. Shashkank V. Joshi and Dr. Steven Adelsheim will discuss students’ mental health issues, particularly as they pertain to returning to classrooms after the trauma of the pandemic.

Kicking off on Friday, Sept. 10 with the popular “Pure Politics” panel with Capitol Advisors, the conference also includes 12 workshops focusing on the following topics: K-12 computer science education and learning in a digital world; advocacy, engagement and community relations; equity access and accountability; funding, finance and facilities; wellness and safety, including the whole child and school climate; leadership through governance and policy; and county office of education best practices.
