Welcome to the ACSA Region VII Classified Educational Leaders fall workshop. ACSA Region VII is proud to offer this professional development experience for our classified educational leaders. Central office and site administrators are encouraged to bring their administrative and support teams to this motivational workshop. After dinner and social time with your colleagues, you will meet our featured speaker, Carissa Phelps. Carissa shares her inspirational story about how she overcame insurmountable odds and escaped being sexually trafficked by a brutal pimp to become an attorney and advocate for youth. Her unique life experiences have enabled Carissa to envision a world where runaways and sexually exploited youth are cared for and guided on their journey to adulthood. Come find out about how schools can identify youth who may be experiencing similar situations and how you can help. During the evening, you will have the opportunity to win one of many prizes, provided by ACSA Region VII and the Charters. Carissa's Book entitled "Runaway Girl: Escaping Life on the Streets, One Helping Hand at a Time" will be available for purchase for $25. Please note: Efforts will be made to accommodate 'district' seating arrangements; however there is no guarantee individuals from districts/sites will be able to sit together.
