Bay Section

President’s Message

Hello Bay Section and Friends,
With much to look forward to, I welcome back all CASCWA colleagues and friends to the 2018-19 school year! I begin the school year proudly as your Bay Section President. As an advocate for socially disadvantaged youth, foster youth and English language learners, I look forward to strengthening relationships with community services. When we look under the surface of the daily lives of our students we see hidden struggles and hardship. We need to continue to build staff, parent and community relationships to maintain the students’ well-being.
CASCWA enlightens, motivates and inspires people to become leaders and advocates. Every year CASCWA offers a State Conference that provides the opportunity for professionals in the educational field to conduct presentations as they share their expertise and discuss hot topics. On April 17 – 19, 2019 the Bay Section will be hosting the State Conference in the Silverado Resort in Napa Valley. We are eagerly preparing to offer you an outstanding repertoire of diverse sessions, great food and enjoyable entertainment. When we plan for events like this one, we keep in mind the needs of all students through an equitable lens and how we can support administrators, teachers, parents and support service staff in providing the necessary services to improve academic performance, social and emotional health, and the overall well-being of a student and community. We demand a healthy, educational career for our students and CASCWA provides us the opportunity to accomplish that. With students in mind, we can challenge ourselves to prepare accordingly to meet their needs. Come join us in Napa!
Evelyn Ocasio
CASCWA Bay Section President

Build relationships and your pipeline!

Last year, CASCWA hosted nearly 700 school and district attendees. Our conferences continue to sell out and we expect the demand this year to be no different. The conference is April 17 – 19, 2019 at the beautiful Silverado Resort in Napa, CA. All sponsors will have their logo added to the CASCWA State Conference program and acknowledgement will be placed throughout the venue. Please be advised that if you are interested in securing an exhibitor table as space is limited with priority given to Platinum, Gold, and Silver sponsors, please click below to review the Sponsor/Exhibitor Contract which outlines all sponsorship levels and benefits.
