Join us in sunny Austin, Texas for the 2017 Fall Conference, October 27-29, 2017

October 27, 2017 to October 29, 2017
Supervision of instruction is being pushed to the back of the agenda for school based and central office leaders as a result of the drive to increase accountability in local, state, and national policy. New evaluation measures of teachers and leaders are time consuming, cumbersome, and provide little room for formative feedback of a supervisory nature.
COPIS seeks proposals related to the theme, Ethical Principles of Supervisory Practice: How Does Supervision Support Teachers and Learners in a Hostile Policy Environment?” We are also open to proposals that aren't directly linked to the conference theme as long as they are supervision-related. Please include the following information in your proposal...
The purpose of the Council of Professors of Instructional Supervision is to provide a professional forum for consideration, discussion, review, and critique of proposals, propositions, and projections regarding supervision of instruction. We strive to stimulate communication, cooperation, and coordination among professors of instructional supervision.
Arthur Blumberg and Edward Pajak, founding members of COPIS, made profound contributions to the study and practice of instructional supervision. In their memory, the Blumberg-Pajak Scholarship fund supports awards and travel for doctoral students and recent graduates to attend and be recognized at COPIS events.
