Carnegie Foundation Summit on Improvement in Education
April 1-3, 2020
San Francisco Marriott Marquis
SUMMIT SITE VISITS (TUESDAY, MARCH 31)
New this year, the Carnegie Summit will offer the opportunity to participate in full-day site visits on Tuesday, March 31. Participants will visit organizations deeply engaged in their system’s cultural transformation and improvement journey and learn from leaders and practitioners in their work settings.
Registration for each site visit requires a separate registration fee of $625 per person, which includes a box lunch and bus travel between the site and the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. In order to participate in a site visit, you must also be registered to attend the general conference. Site visits are limited to a small number of attendees, so we encourage you to register early.
SUMMIT PRE-CONFERENCE COURSES (WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1)
$625 — Standard Rate
Registering for a Summit pre-conference course provides you with access to a full-day course on April 1 with lunch. In order to participate in a pre-conference course, you must also be registered to attend the general conference.
SUMMIT GENERAL CONFERENCE (WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1–3)
Summit general conference registration includes access to all keynotes, breakout sessions, poster sessions, and receptions on April 1–3. Lunch will be provided on April 2 and 3. As noted above, both site visits on March 31 and pre-conference courses on April 1 require separate registration fees.
A group of five or more people registering together at the same time will automatically receive a discounted rate of $885 per person. To access this rate, after registering the initial person, click the “Add Group Member” button on the Registration Summary screen. Complete the same steps for each additional person in your group. The discount will be automatically applied on the payment screen after the threshold of five registrations has been met. The group discount cannot be applied retroactively, so be sure to register your entire group together in one registration session.
Please note that the group discount is only applicable to the general conference registration rate and cannot be combined with any special registration rates, including federal government, full-time student, or K–12 teacher rates.
