Overview

This year’s MEGA Conference theme– Arizona’s Rising Stars – will be a showcase of research, programs, and best practices for Title I schools. Building on STEAM themes from past conferences, this year we will place a special emphasis on the “S” for Science and the “A” for Arts.

Highlights include:

★ Keynote speakers: San Diego Schools Superintendent Cindy Marten will discuss the art of school improvement and psychologist, Dr. Joann Deak, will discuss the science of the brain.
★ Family Engagement Month – November 2014
★ Celebration of Title I Reward Schools
★ Announcement of 2014 Title I Distinguished Schools
★ Presentations from Arizona’s educators who are high performers

MEGA is a GREEN conference and committed to environmental and social responsibility in the development of this event. Instead of printing a Conference program, you will be able to plan your conference online. By using the daily schedule, choosing your sessions and downloading or printing your handouts, you will be prepared to participate and enjoy the conference without the weight of carrying around extra paper.

Session descriptions will be posted on this website in the coming weeks. Two weeks prior to the conference, electronic PDF fillable forms of most PowerPoint presentations and handouts will also be posted. Please check back often prior to the start of the conference as handouts are posted daily.

We look forward to seeing you at MEGA!
