Move it from Savannah
We re-consider the location every year. The major points for leaving it where it is are: 1) Since the DOE Data Collections conference is in the northern portion of the state
(Athens), we feel this is an opportunity for districts in the southern area of the
state, 2) The Savannah Convention Center consistently offers us rates that
allow us to hold such a large conference.
Different time of year
the best time frame for getting updates that pertain to Student Record. Any
later in the year, and we get into Assessment season, graduation, and the crazy end-of-year procedures.
More School Level Classes
We appreciate the presence that the GaDOE and other state agencies, and the SIS vendors have at our conference. But what makes GSIS stand apart is the number of sessions we offer that are led by other district employees. Please consider giving us specific topics that you would like for us to cover. Also, we are always looking for presenters. Please consider offering one or more sessions. GSIS cannot work without those who are willing to present!
GaDOE usually announces our conference at their August meeting. Plus we send a regular newsletter to everyone who has signed up for our ListServe. Use the link below to add someone to our ListServe.
