school-discipline-conference

School Discipline Conference

Over the past 20 years, educators have seen a transformation in many facets of school life. Curriculum has changed dramatically, technology continues to be implemented and assessment has become far more rigorous. Yet, in many schools, discipline remains relatively the same as it was in 1995.

girl-bullying-empowerment-conference

Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference

For the past 11 years, this Conference has brought focus to the problem of relational aggression among girls. Many of the field-tested interventions presented at this unique gathering encourage friendship, sisterhood and building other types of supportive relationships – hence the added emphasis on female empowerment.

boy-brains-engagement-conference

Boy Brains & Engagement Conference

Boys are more likely to be held back, suspended or expelled - or to drop out of school altogether. This conference will help educators understand and support the unique neurochemistry of the male brain.

at-risk-students-conference

At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference

This conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies that educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students experience success in school. More than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). 

innovative-teaching-strategies-conference

Innovative Teaching Strategies Conference

This 3-day conference will provide an opportunity for teachers, administrators and other educators to learn about new insights and strategies for reaching and teaching students (PreK-12). It will emphasize evidence-based and novel instructional practices from national-exemplary programs currently being used in schools.
