Information for Chaperones


  • The Brookline/Boston area does not offer many hotels with large event space.  The meeting space at the contracted hotel is a bit smaller than we had hoped for, but it will still work for our needs.  Because the space is smaller, we are capping registration for districts this year.  The MSAN office has spent a lot of time thinking about the best way to be equitable in this situation.  We have decided to use the number of traditional high schools in each district to determine the number of attendees (i.e. districts with four high schools will be allowed to bring more people than districts with three high schools, districts with three high schools will be allowed to bring more people than districts with two high schools, etc.). 
  • In May 2018, your chaperones were sent a message regarding how many people your district could register.  We wanted to get these numbers to you early, so that you have plenty of time to plan. Please contact the MSAN office if you have questions about the number of people who can register from your district. If your district received information that you are allowed to send more than 10 attendees, please note that a registration fee of $300/person will be charged for anyone over the initial 10.
  • Registration is transferable, but not refundable.
  • Student Registration Form must be completed for each student attending.
  • Chaperone Registration Form must be completed for each chaperone attending.
  • Registration closes Wednesday, September 26, 2018
