Keystone's Premier Education Conference

June 22-23, 2021 – Virtual Option +  Grand River Center, Dubuque*


It's been a _________ of a school year!  Some might say it was a "rollercoaster" of a school year – we'll let you fill in the blank. KPEC 2021 will be an opportunity to catch your breath and reflect, but also a time to engage in learning and plan for next year. We think you'll find our keynote line-up of nationally-recognized speakers to be a breath of fresh air.  

A rich summer conference experience will be availed to all KPEC 2021 attendees whether attending in-person, from home, or from a school satellite location with peers.*  You'll be able to direct your own learning by choosing from a variety of content area breakout sessions and......drumroll please..... you won't have to miss any of them because recordings will be available to attendees after the conference!  Using the free Whova app you'll be able to network, have meet-ups, and dialogue with other attendees – no matter their location. If you need recertification credit, we have you covered as well. 


REGISTRATION IS JUST $99
