Cal TURN Labor-Management Collaboration Conference March 2017

March 2-3, 2017

Dear Cal TURN Colleague,

Our next Cal TURN event is scheduled for March 2-3, 2017 at the Westin Sacramento, 4800 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento, CA. Our conference will focus on A Systems Approach to Promoting Excellence and Equity. We are assembling presenters, both from our local unions and districts as well as nationally recognized specialists and guests to share promising practices so we can learn from and support each other’s work.

Our Cal TURN teams represent union & teacher leaders, school & district administrators and board members who are working jointly to plan and implement teacher evaluation systems and college and career ready standards to improve teaching and learning. We continue to encourage and support our Cal TURN teams to jointly develop, implement and share their efforts. Additionally, we will work with teams to develop action plans in order to facilitate the work in our school communities.

Cal TURN locals are encouraged to invite representatives from their district and school administration, boards of education and community leaders to join their teams for this two-day forum. The conference will begin at 9:30 am on Thursday, March 2, with registration and breakfast beginning at 8:30 am, and will conclude by 2:30 pm on Friday, March 3.
