All conference attendees should be informed on the following:

    • Be on time for all sessions and remain until sessions are adjourned.

Parents/guardians may serve as chaperones and must register online, pay the required registration fee, and attend the entire conference for supervision of the student(s). Pleased be advised that your local school district may have specific rules that require a higher adult chaperon-to-student ratio. You should follow the rules of your school district if the requirements are higher than those set forth by NASSP sponsored conferences.
