SAVE THE DATE: The San Diego County Civic Learning Conference and Showcase

This event is being offered through a partnership between SDCOE, the San Diego Civic Learning Partnership, and the San Diego Unified School District. Participants will have opportunities to learn about local civic learning opportunities, hear from experts, and network with colleagues. The day will include breakout sessions and will culminate in a showcase of student civic learning projects. 

This offering is currently being planned for March 15 and will be held at the SDCOE main campus in Linda Vista. However, for health and safety reasons, it could be moved to a virtual event. More information will be available in the fall.
