Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the conference and the institutes?

What’s going on with the registration? I have to register at 2 different places? Where is the second place?

Yes, there are two different places to sign up. The registration and the institute selection.

  • In the registration page, attendees choose if they want to attend the 1-day conference, the 3-day institute, or both for 4 days total. This is also where you state any meal preferences.

  • In the institute selection, you will select your 3-day institute. The institute selection will come by email after you register. We will send the email that contains the institute selection only if: You signed up to take part in a 3-day institute (3 days total). Or, you signed up to take part in the 1-day conference AND a 3-day institute (4 days total).

OK, I’m still confused. Where is the institute selection?

We’ll email you the link if you signed up for 3 days or for 4 days.

But, really, what’s in it for me?

After attending the Summer Summit you get the opportunity to:

  • Connect with passionate educators from around the state

  • Dive deep into Lastinger areas of expertise while engaging in a collaborative learning environment.

  • Leave with strategies and processes that you can incorporate at the beginning of the school year

  • Spend time focusing on your professional growth to refine and update your practice
