Substitution/Transfer Policy: Transfers made prior to  February 21, 2024 will be assessed a $35 administrative fee to transfer a registration to another individual. Please fill out the substitution form to request a transfer of your registration. Once we process the substitution request over to the new attendee, an invoice will be sent that will need to be paid to finalize the registration switch.

Therefore, any transfer requests after February 21, 2024 should be brought to the registration desk onsite along with the $50 on-site substitution fee - we will be able to take all substitutions onsite.

Need help getting your school or district to fund the CADA convnention?

School site councils allocate funds for professional development from local site budgets. LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) added $15.3 billion in assistance to California's K-12 schools to combat the pandemic and the recession. You may also check with your principal or district office for access to funds from the following sources: Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) program, Title IV (Drug-Free Schools) School Improvement Funds, Title 1 (under the category of Safe and Orderly Environment), Title V (Innovated Programs), Pupil Retention Block Grant, or Associated Student Body funds. According to FCMAT's website: if district board policy states that the CADA Convention is an acceptable expenditure, even though students, are not attending and the students agree on the expenditure before it occurs, then ASB funds can pay for you to attend the CADA Convention.!

Can ASB Funds Legally Pay for Activity Directors to attend the CADA Conference? See the response FCMAT gives on this.
