    Join teachers and administrators from across Kansas on May 31 (9:00 AM– 3:00 PM) to hear James Rickabaugh, ASCD author of “Tapping the Power of Personalized Learning: A Roadmap for School Leaders” virtually in the place of your choice or with a group of Kansas educators at Newman UniversityBishop Gerber Science Center Room 105.  Registration includes a digital copy of his book.  

    The workshop will provide participants step by step guidance for the implementation of personalized learning as well as:

    • a detailed overview of the research and work behind the model development;
    • a complete introduction to the heart of the model—a comprehensive, multi-layer framework centered on the three core components of learner profiles, customized learning paths, and proficiency-based progress;
    • tools and activities for assessing and adjusting the model to meet the specific needs of the students and staff;
    • strategies for increasing and reinforcing enthusiasm for the change process among everyone involved, from the classroom to the greater community; and
    • an abundance of real-life examples and reflections from students, teachers, principals, and superintendents whose schools have flourished in record time and with minimal additional funding or resources.


    KSDE defines “Personalized Learning” as placing the whole child at the center of instruction.  It is informed by strong relationships between educators/students/family members/community relationships to provide equity and choice in time, place, path, and demonstration of learning.  Join KASCD as we learn more about this powerful model to engage students and enhance student achievement to "Lead the World in the Success of Each Student".

    $75 for KASCD members 

    $125 for non-KASCD members

    • EXHIBITOR'S PROSPECTUS and Invitation to Participate in the

      51st Annual USA-Kansas Convention!

      June 1-3, 2022

      Century II Convention Center Wichita, Kansas

       

      On behalf of USA-Kansas, we would like to extend a warm welcome and thank you to our vendors. USA-Kansas values our relationship with vendors and corporate partners. We recognize and applaud your commitment to supporting education in Kansas.

      As suppliers and manufacturers of school equipment, products, and services, we recognize the critical role your business plays in supporting education and the economy, therefore, we are pleased to extend this invitation to join us for our 51st Annual USA-Kansas Convention.

      We have grown membership and increased convention participation over the last seven years. As such, we believe the time and resources utilized at the USA-Kansas Convention is very valuable. Responding to exhibitor feedback and in an attempt to return to some resemblance of normalcy post-Covid, we have once again established a designated and uninterrupted vendor time. The vendor session will run Wednesday, June 1st, from 4:00-7:00 P.M.


      If you’re looking to make an even bigger splash at the convention, USA-Kansas invites you to:

    • Advertise in the convention program (specifications and pricing are in this prospectus)
    • Don't want to pack raffle prizes? Participate in our "large prize" raffle. Based on feedback from exhibitors, we are once again inviting exhibitors to buy into this activity. These prizes will be given away in Expo Hall during the Vendor Reception. Participants must be present when their name is announced to win the prize. (Prizes include gift baskets, electronics, and similar items)
    • Consider sponsoring an established USA-Kansas activity during the convention or hosting a hospitality event on Wednesday or Thursday evening (on or off site).

     

    NEW THIS YEAR – During the Showcase administrators will be voting on your booths. Voting will take place in two categories “Most Creative/Innovative/Interactive Booth” AND “Best Swag/Prizes.” This is designed to encourage interaction with our vendors, plus gives vendors the opportunity to win discounts on next year’s event, including a HALF off booth space at the 2023 USA-KS Conference to the winners! Start thinking today how you can make your space STAND OUT! We ARE ALSO ADDING A VENDOR ONLY Hospitality Area which will be open prior to the showcase with drinks/snacks because we know you are busy when the food comes out later on.

     

    Questions regarding convention exhibits and corporate partner programs should be directed to Sara Chinn (schinn@usakansas.org) or 785-232-6566.
