LINK to the 2024 MSAN Institute Draft Agenda

Join committed colleagues from across the United States as we:

  • Share current research and best practices with local and national experts.
  • Push our thinking in large and small group discussions with exceptional educators doing this work in real schools and districts.
  • Hear from students most intimately impacted by these issues.
  • Engage in focused district planning sessions and job-alike conversations.


Important things to note:
  • Each MSAN member district receives six (6) free registrations! The cost for the seventh registered person and above is $300/person.
  • Please use district email addresses when registering.
  • Each district will have a unique discount code, which can only be used six times.
  • We suggest each district choose an Institute registration contact person to coordinate registration for the entire district group. This person will coordinate registration for district attendees and/or ensure proper tracking of the use of the district’s unique registration code.
  • Districts may choose to use this TEMPLATE when coordinating Institute registration.
  • The cost for all registrants who are not part of an MSAN member district is $400/person.
