K-12 Administrators

K-12 Administrator Professional Development Opportunity!

ITEEA invites administrators to attend the 78th Annual Conference at NO REGISTRATION COST. Administrator registrations are sponsored and FREE to the first 50 registrants! Come and see what your teachers are learning and experiencing at our conference. ITEEA is offering a specifically designed STEM session strand for educational administrators. This is a unique opportunity to network, bring back knowledge to your school, and implement effective K-12 STEM instruction. ADMINISTRATOR REGISTRATION FORM

Note: The Administrator Strand is comprised of programming intended for those not in the Technology and Engineering profession (principals, district-level administrators, and BOE members) in order for them to build better understanding of our field in order to increase advocacy. The Administrator Strand serves as an introduction to Technology and Engineering education, rather than as professional development for individuals currently working in the field.  Technology and Engineering Education professionals who wish to attend professional development learning sessions should register as professional attendees, rather than for the Administrator Strand. Anyone who chooses the Administrator Strand will need to provide a letter from their school district indicating your current school district-level position.
