“I found all of the keynote sessions to be very engaging and relevant. Each of the presenters was knowledgeable about the content and shared tips and practical strategies to assist site administrators in building and sustaining culture. As a high school principal I found the final keynote to be the most valuable to me. Mr. Jones was outstanding and it was nice to hear the perspective of a high school colleague. Thank you! ”

Tony Newman, principal/assistant, Ramona High School, California
