In the past year, the world has shifted from needed school improvements to school SAFETY from a health perspective. It is clear that face-to-face, .. Read more onsite professional learning conferences are not going to be possible for the remainder of 2021 and perhaps 2022. This 2 DAY Conference on CONSECUTIVE FRIDAYS focusses on practical and research-based MTSS practices that make a difference, to meet the needs of ALL students. In the context of social justice, schools, teachers, and students must work together to create safe and nurturing environments that are driven by behavioral science. Conference speakers are nationally recognized for their efforts to promote positive outcomes for all students, but especially for those at risk for school failure, whether by poor academic or social emotional or behavioral performance. This conference will also include typically neglected topics essential for equity, early childhood and English Learners.

Highlights

  • Keynote and breakout by Dr. Louisa Moats on science of reading and "settled knowledge."

  • Keynote by Dr. Clay Cook on School Climates Sensitive to Trauma, Informed by Behavioral Science
