Target Audience: SAIS professional development events are designed for those currently employed in a K-12 independent school. Topics are presented and discussed from an independent school perspective and working within the unique culture of our schools. As such, registration is limited to those from schools that are either already members of SAIS or from non-member schools that meet the membership criteria. This includes established schools that offer an academic program within the K-12 continuum and is financed almost exclusively by private rather than public funds.
