Designing for Sustainability


The Capital Hilton

Washington, District of Columbia

October 9 - 11

Join us for our annual fall technical assistance and training conference in Washington, DC at The Capital Hilton to learn how to create, sustain and improve magnet schools. Sessions will also focus on ensuring innovative magnet school plans, strategic planning, and rigorous quality theme-based curriculum.

This is a great opportunity for schools and districts (MSAP grantees, non-grantees, future grantees) to brainstorm and network with colleagues in the magnet community.

Five Pillars for Magnet Schools:
- Diversity
- Innovative Curriculum Development
- Academic Excellence
- High Quality Instructional Systems
- Family and Community Partnerships

Four Distinct Tracks:

  • MAGNET ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Aspiring models of innovative school plans and approaches to teaching and learning. 
  • STRATEGIC OPPORTUNITIES: Flexibility and creative funding sources towards creating/sustaining a healthy, and rigorous magnet program/school.
  • STRENGTHEN THE LEARNER EXPERIENCE: Developing quality theme-based curriculum to support your theme that ensures rigor, deep engagement and return on investment.
  • CERTIFICATION - STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE: Deeper examination of the standards; strategic planning for current and future certification candidates.
