Sub Reimbursements

Thanks to the generosity of our chaperone track sponsor, Economics Arkansas, we are able to provide sub reimbursements up to $75 a day for teachers who chaperone students to our conference. You should have received a sub reimbursement form in your email but if you need another copy, please see here. You can request a reimbursement for both days, only one, or neither based on need. Sub reimbursement forms can be emailed to marsha@economicsarkansas.org.

Chaperone Track Participation

Our 2020 Girls of Promise Chaperone track is presented by Economics Arkansas. They will be conducting breakout sessions all day on Thursday April 2nd and the morning of Friday April 3rd for chaperones who opt to participate on their registration. Those who opt to participate will be eligible to receive professional development hours for the sessions. A full agenda of the sessions will be posted here shortly.

Other Chaperone Information

Lodging is provided for chaperones at the 4H Center on the evening of Thursday April 2nd. Lunch & dinner are provided for chaperones on Thursday and brunch will be provided for chaperones on the morning of Friday April 3rd prior to the keynote speaker, Ellen Ochoa. Chaperones are responsible for their transportation from the 4H Center to Heifer International in Downtown Little Rock. Students will ride buses provided by Women’s Foundation of Arkansas. For those chaperones departing after the conference with students via school bus, the buses will need to depart from Heifer International. If transportation provides an obstacle to attendance for you or your students, please email rbuttry@womensfoundationarkansas.org.
