A. Conference Evaluation Links

Please ask your students to complete the online conference evaluation, so we can better meet their needs at future conferences.

Student Evaluation: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FLC2018student

Advisors, please complete the advisor conference evaluation by November 14. Evaluating at least 5 breakout sessions you attended is required for Clock Hours and will be mailed to OSPI with the sign-in sheets for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. After November 14, I will mail clock hour forms to the advisors and chaperones who signed in, completed the evaluation, and attended the marketing fair.
