Don't Miss the Sept 7th Early Bird Special
The Coalition of McKay Scholarship Schools is excited about hosting our Eighth Fall Conference on October 5th in Orlando.  Our theme this year is “Portraits of Success”. 
As participating schools in the McKay Scholarship Program, we know the faces of our students tell it all.  They are learning, and they are heading towards success BECAUSE their differences and learning needs are being met.  We will be sharing these portraits in different state venues – stayed tuned in to how your school’s Portraits of Success can be presented.
