The MSA National Conference is an integral component of our mission of providing leadership for high-quality, innovative, instructional programs that promote choice, diversity, equity, and academic excellence for all students.  Participants experience a wide spectrum of professional development opportunities that promote equity and diversity through outstanding keynote speakers, networking opportunities, and general and breakout sessions on topics including best practices, innovative instruction, technology, and theme integration in magnet education. For the first time, parents will be invited to the conference to learn more about magnet schools and how to support their children’s educational futures.  Participants also will visit magnet schools at all grade levels focused on various themes within the host and sponsoring districts.  

We hope to see you in Hartford!
