Description & Overview

The Michigan Pupil Accounting and Attendance Association is pleased to announce a fully re-designed approach to the Fall 2020 Conference.  We will not let today’s circumstances prevent us from delivering the very information you need to do your jobs in the best available timeline.   While we are sad that we can’t see you in person at the Battle of the Bays this Fall, we are excited to be able to offer you a Virtual Fall Conference Library full of some of our most sought after sessions.

How Does it Work?

Essentially what you are investing in is a complete library of information available at your fingertips, at your convenience, that will change as the beginning of the school progresses, and our state leaders provide more information.   

  • We opened the conference library to registered attendees on Monday, September 21st. At that time, all certification courses and other known courses were posted to the virtual library as recordings. Registered attendees are given access to the library through our website and may begin watching classes at their leisure.
  • Certification credit can be acquired by completing and returning a conference credit form that asks you for codes you will see during each certification course. This virtual format is actually a huge advantage because you can literally take every offered class you need to obtain your certification, where you would be limited by time at a live conference.
  • We will also have a limited selection of non-certification courses offered at the conference’s opening. In addition, the sessions you are most likely anxious for, the sessions on updates and changes for the coming year, are being added to the conference library as they become known, and content is created. This means that the conference library will remain open until we get the answers we all need, even if it means through the end of the year. MPAAA is committed to keeping the conference available until we know what is expected.
  • As a registered attendee, you’ll get regular emails letting you know when new content is available. We have also opened a Q & A forum on the MPAAA website that will allow you to ask questions of the presenters from the various sessions, and get answers. The advantage of the forum is that it also allows you to see other questions that have been asked and the response.

What is Being Offered?

  • We are pleased to offer, in partnership with MSBO, two certification courses that you may need to finalize your certification if you are in the PAS/SED/PAA tracts. The Principles of Education and Team Leadership courses are only offered every other year, and this is the year!
  • We intend to provide training on areas most relevant to this approaching school year, and that means sessions on changes and new rules and laws.
  • Of course, we will have our partners from CEPI and MDE providing the most update-to-date sessions available.
  • Due to the current climate, our agenda will remain fluid, with some of our courses being updated up through the day the conference opens and even after the conference ends.

What Does it Cost?

While a conference of this type is undoubtedly complex to engineer, it does have SOME advantages. One is the price. We plan to make the conference available to members for $195.00, and to non-members for $295.00.  You can watch ALL of the sessions at no extra cost. So yet another bonus you get with our Virtual Conference Library that we are unable to offer at our Live events. With finances on EVERYONE’S mind right now, this discounted fee, and the lack of any travel or hotel costs, is intended to make the decision to ‘attend’ the conference a bit easier for your District to swallow.

MPAAA realizes we are all working in an environment that is unprecedented during our lifetimes. We hope that this unique conference offering will allow you to get the information you need in the most comfortable, most convenient, and least expensive way possible.

You can register with a credit card by clicking the 'Register' buttons at the top or bottom of the screen. If you need to register with a check, a registration form to complete and return with the check is below.
