CLSBA Unity Summit

California Latino School Boards Association Presents

Accelerating Latino/a/x Student Success

CLSBA’s Annual Unity Summit is the association’s premier event providing attendees with dynamic and inspirational keynote speakers, cutting-edge issues, challenges, and viable solutions. More than 350 school board members, superintendents, district administrators, and other educational leaders gather each year to learn, network, and support each other.

A Virtual Event

CLSBA’s Annual Unity Summit will bring together school board leaders from across the state for a candid discussion about what education leaders and elected officials can do to accelerate the learning of Latina/o/x students as the pandemic rages on. This year’s theme, Accelerating Latino/a/x Student Success recognizes that this crisis created conditions for Latina/o/x students who were disproportionately impacted after over a year of virtual learning. The pandemic exacerbated and widened existing inequities faced by Latino/a/x families who are unable to access broadband or other resources needed to meet their children’s educational, social, emotional, and nutritional needs.

Our Conference Vision

Be the premier professional development opportunity for school board members who commit to advancing effective and equitable policies that strengthen the academic opportunities for of Latino/a/x students, families, and faculty, and the quality of the elementary and secondary schools within their communities.

Who should attend Unity Summit?

School board trustees

State education agency personnel and other policymakers who seek to support professional development for school board trustees

Superintendents and district administrators

Educators (school/district leaders, teachers) in traditional, online/, hybrid, or blended schools seeking to share best practices and learn from one another

Companies and non-profit organizations providing equitable student resources, professional learning, and other support for Latino/a/x students


This won't be a "sit and listen" conference. You will have opportunities to share your experiences, learn from collaborators, catch up with colleagues, and meet new friends in both facilitated sessions and informal settings.

So much of the value of a conference comes from the "hallway conversations" outside the sessions. We aim to maximize those opportunities while maintaining the benefits of more traditional conference programming.


Conference registration includes access to workshops, the virtual exhibit hall, networking activities, keynote speakers and more. CLSBA members save when registering for the conference.
