School Tours

The NAEA Board has worked hard, in partnership with the Hillsborough County Public Schools, to offer a spotlight of some of their stellar schools.  This is a great opportunity for you to experience the best of Florida’s public education.  Check out the list of schools for this years tour!



We are so lucky that there are so may educational institutions that want to share their knowledge and proven practices with our NAEA Conference attendees.  Due to the overwhelming request to still submit a Call For Proposal, we have opened up the form again, for any open spots that still may exist in our conference agenda.

Interested in being a SPOTLIGHT SCHOOL at the Gallery Walk?

A spotlight school will come with your team and showcase a best practice or unique program element of your alternative school in the Annual NAEA Gallery Walk! You will be among other alternative schools across the nation in a pre-conference Gallery Walk.  Once approved, you will be provided with a 6 x 6 table in an exhibitor-like hall during the pre-conference morning events.  Bring handouts, visual displays, laptop displays to support you in sharing your spotlighted best practice.  No electricity, screen, projector (or space for it) provided.  Be ready to explain/illustrate “how-to” and answer questions for those visiting your booth.  Your peers will be eager to replicate your great ideas back at their own schools!  This is one way we can all work together to take alternative and non-traditional programs to a new level of excellence across the nation!  Spotlight School Space is limited, so apply today!
