Dear Faculty Advisor,   

Each year The Virginia School-University Partnership (which is in the process of transitioning to a new name, The Virginia School Consortium for Learning) sponsors a Student Leadership Conference.  The twenty-seventh Annual Student Leadership Conference is scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 2017.  Last year’s conference was enjoyed by more than 350 students and faculty advisors from more than 40 different high schools, and we hope to make this year’s event even more successful. 

The Annual Student Leadership conference, which is offered to your high school as a benefit of your division’s membership in VSUP-VaSCL, is absolutely FREE to all participants.

The VSUP-VaSCL Student Leadership Conference has traditionally been a terrific opportunity for students from all over Virginia to get together and share their ideas and experiences.  Students have responded very positively in the past to the chance to learn from each other about successful activities and effective approaches to issues of concern in today’s high schools.

This year’s conference will be held at the Holiday Inn (1901 Emmet Street) in Charlottesville, VA, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 16, 2017. 

We hope that your school will choose to send a team (of three-five students and one-two faculty advisors) to participate in this year’s exciting event.

If your school chooses to prepare a five minute formal presentation to give at the Share Fair Assembly that will be held during the conference, you will be given the option of bringing two additional students (for a maximum total of seven student participants) to the Student Leadership Conference.

More information on the plans for this year’s VSUP-VaSCL Student Leadership Conference is available on the VSUP-VaSCL website:

If your high school wishes to participate in this year’s event, you need to REGISTER your team members by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, using the online registration form on the VSUP-VaSCL website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We hope that your school will be a part of what promises to be a very memorable event!
