On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, Magnet Schools of America was notified that a large number of school districts have prohibited travel outside the state due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). With these cancellations, we cannot deliver the MSA conference experience that you have come to expect. Accordingly, we are postponing our annual conference to this fall. I will provide exact dates as soon as they are confirmed.
For those who have paid their registrations, we will apply those registrations to the fall. If you choose to transfer your registration to a different person at any point, please feel free to do so. Likewise, if you prefer to have your registration refunded, we will do so. Please submit these requests/inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
For those who reserved rooms at the hotel already, there is no need to cancel right away. The hotel has extended the cancellation cut off by a week to give us time to figure out the next steps.
I truly regret the inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this difficult time.
Should you have any other questions regarding MSA’s position on the coronavirus and the 38th National Conference, please contact the Executive Director, Todd Mann at email@example.com.

It features outstanding keynote speakers and sessions focusing on best practices in curriculum and instruction, technology integration, school leadership, and magnet school design.
