We are in process of reserving a small block at Hilton Doubletree, However, on-line prices at this time appear to be quite similar (@149.00). As an FYI -The San Diego Chargers play the Raiders at home Sunday November 16th. Raider’s fans often stay at the Doubletree as it is on the Trolley Line to the stadium.
Shuttle services to and from the airport to either hotel are provided by Super Shuttle, Cloud 9 Shuttle, or other shuttle services for approximately $10-$15 per person. Taxis are also available to and from the airport for approximately $25.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How come I wasn’t invited? How did people get an invite to this event?
Invitations to express interest and submit teams for the San Diego event went out to attendees who participated in the Harvard convening first. Additionally, the American School Counseling Association forwarded a request to state ASCA presidents and school district directors. Those interested in attending were invited to submit team members and commitments via an online survey.
- Who’s coming from my state?
The list of attendees will be released following the event.
Yes! Live streaming will be provided during the event. A link has been provided on the homepage of this website and will be live Monday (November 17) morning.
- I put in a request to come but I was not selected. Why not?
There were far more requests than could be accommodated to attend this convening. Selections were made based on balance of team members (higher ed, K-12,and college access) and commitments made to collaborate with other stakeholders.
- Am I supposed to fill all this out by myself?
Some teams are much further along than others in creating their strategic action plan. If you feel comfortable filling it out by yourself, please give it a try. Drafts are welcome and will be appreciated by your team when you arrive in San Diego. Technical assistance will also be proved in San Diego for those who need it.
Please watch the webinar on Friday, November 7th at 1:30 pm EST (10:30am PST). If you are unable to watch live, a YouTube link will be uploaded to the website this weekend.
