Support Staff Academy Conference Call for Proposals Now Open!

SSA Logo Banner

We are now accepting proposals for the 2019 Support Staff Academy on June 6. Presenting at SSA is a great opportunity to form new professional connections and share your knowledge with those who impact students from behind the scenes including bus drivers, custodians, food service personnel and administrative assistants.

Each year our lineup of breakout sessions receives overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees who enjoy learning new skills to enhance both their personal and professional lives.  

Frequently requested topics include:

  • Technology skills (Google, Gmail, etc.)
  • Personal well-being (yoga, healthy eating, self-care, work/life balance, etc.)
  • Workplace communication (how to have difficult conversations, professional speaking and writing)
  • Customer service tips
  • Office organization
  • Retirement planning and money management

While sessions on the above topics are needed, we will consider additional topics as space and time allow.  If you have a unique idea for a session, we encourage you to submit a proposal!

If you are interested in being a part of this rewarding day, please fill out the brief form found here.

Proposals are due by 3:00 Friday, April 12.
