Because VCTM is one of the hosts for the regional conference (see below), in March VCTM will sponsor an Academy rather than the Spring Conference. The dates are March 6-7, 2015 and the location is Virginia Beach. There will be grade band themes for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 and above. Stay tuned for more information but mark it on your calendar now.
