Dear Esteemed Members of the SCABSE Community,

As we gather once again for our much-anticipated Winter Conference, I extend my warmest greetings to each of you – dedicated teachers, administrators, superintendents, school board members, and fellow educators. Your presence here is not just attendance; it’s a reflection of your unwavering dedication to educational excellence and leadership.

This year, our theme, “Leveling Up and Leading the Way,” encapsulates our collective journey
towards new heights in educational leadership and innovation. In a world where the landscape of education continually evolves, it is imperative that we, as educators and leaders, rise to the occasion. We are called upon to not only navigate but also shape the future of education.

As we embark on this conference, we recognize the challenges that lie ahead – from adapting to technological advancements to addressing the ever-changing needs of our students. But,
with challenges come opportunities. Opportunities to lead with vision, to innovate with purpose, and to level up in our personal and professional growth.

Throughout this conference, we aim to equip you with new strategies, insights, and connections. Our sessions are designed to inspire and empower you, ensuring that you leave here with renewed vigor and a toolkit brimming with ideas to implement in your respective roles.

SCABSE remains steadfast in its mission to champion a high-quality education for all, with a special focus on uplifting African-American students. Our collective efforts in forming alliances, advocating for policy changes, and providing exceptional professional development are more crucial than ever.

As we engage in fruitful discussions, share best practices, and build lasting networks, let us remember the power of unity in our quest for educational excellence. Your support and participation are key to the success of not just this conference, but also in shaping the future of education.

Thank you for your continued commitment to SCABSE and for being an integral part of this
transformative journey. I am confident that together, we will not only level up but also lead the way in creating a brighter future for all our students.

Enjoy the conference, and let’s make this a remarkable experience for all involved!

With sincere appreciation and anticipation,

Eric L. Jeffcoat

SCABSE President-elect and Conference Chair
