2024 SDLC Schedule Changes

SDLC students will start each conference day (Thursday and Friday, December 5-6) with breakfast at 6:45 AM MT.  Lunch and an afternoon snack will also be provided. The day ends at 6:00 PM MT, and students must be picked up by their chaperones no later than 6:30 PM MT.

Registration Checklist

  • Download the SDLC forms, including the Student Participant Handbook, and gather registration information for your approved number of students.
  • Confirm who will register your chaperones and student delegation.
  • Decide who will serve as you school’s SDLC chaperone(s). NAIS encourages each school to designate a maximum of two official chaperones and one emergency backup chaperone.
  • All chaperones must attend a mandatory orientation before their students can participate in SDLC programming. These orientations will be conducted onsite in Denver.
