If you have special visual, hearing, ambulatory or other needs, please indicate that on the registration form or contact the WSSDA Conference Manager at 360.320.6201 at least two weeks before the conference.
Spouses and guests may purchase tickets to attend meal functions by contacting the WSSDA Registrar. Remember, tickets for spouses and guests may not be paid with school district or other public funds.
- If you are registering for someone else, select the group option. This allows you to enter yourself as the group contact and receive the invoice and other conference communications. You will not be automatically registered.
- If registering for an anticipated new board member, using a name such as “Board Member 1” gives us the ability to identify records that need attention as the conference nears, so we can contact you for more information.
Condition of Attendance
In order to comply with the law and provide a more comfortable environment for all attendees, the conference registration confirms that you (and anyone you register) are agreeing to comply with the following:
Pursuant to WAC 292-110-010, WSSDA is a state agency responsible for the proper use of state resources. Unauthorized distribution of materials that support, promote the interests of, or solicit for an outside organization or group by an attendee at any WSSDA-sponsored event or in any conference facility utilized by WSSDA for such events may result in revocation of the credentials that allow that individual to attend the event and/or barring of that individual’s attendance at future WSSDA-sponsored events.
