school discipline conference innovative schools summit teacher conference atlanta las vegas san antonio orlando

School Discipline Conference
Orlando | Atlanta | Las Vegas | San Antonio

The discussion around school discipline can be polarizing. But almost everyone agrees that students need to be in class in order to succeed academically, and that suspensions and expulsions should be as rare as possible. And almost everyone agrees that student and educator safety should be top priority. This Conference is a must-attend gathering for educators focused on improving academic performance by applying the most current innovations and research to behavior intervention and classroom management.

girl bullying empowerment conference innovative schools summit

Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference
Atlanta | San Antonio

For the past 12 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.

school climate culture conference innovative schools summit education conference las vegas san antonio orlando

School Climate & Culture Forum
Orlando | Atlanta | Las Vegas

This event features practical, real-world initiatives that are successfully transforming the quality, character and personality of schools. It showcases programs, assessments and tools proven to improve school culture and climate. Evidence-based and research-based interventions will be introduced, while the forum also highlights high-potential efforts currently being implemented in the laboratory of everyday school life.

At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference
Atlanta | San Antonio

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).

Wired Differently: Trauma Informed Schools
Las Vegas

Now in its seventh year, the Wired Differently Conference will offer a wide array of critical insights and best practices for reaching and teaching students with a variety of emotional and behavioral challenges – especially trauma, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), PTSD and related issues. Principals, other administrators, general ed teachers, special needs teachers, resource teachers and paraprofessionals attending the Wired Differently Conference will benefit from tools, recommendations and strategies for working with this often high-potential portion of the student population.

NextGen School Safety Conference
Las Vegas

Tragedies such as the shootings in Parkland, FL and Sandy Hook, CT have brought increased attention to school safety. The 2019 NextGen School Safety Conference will focus on steps that schools can take to prevent tragedies such as Sandy Hook, while also addressing steps that can be taken to prevent “everyday” tragedies – such as a teacher suffering a serious back injury, a teenager suffering a serious concussion or a second grader stepping in front of a school bus.

school counseling conference school counselor strategies conference innovative schools summit

Counseling Strategies & Resources Conference
Orlando

The 9th Annual Counseling Strategies & Resources is being held in Orlando in 2020, and brings together well-known featured presenters. This conference will also feature best practices from educators and other professionals working with youth. Some programs will be research-tested, while others will be promising, innovative approaches created by practicing professionals to help them better connect with different types of students.

educating boys boy brains conference innovative schools summit teacher conference

Boy Brains & Engagement Conference
Orlando | Las Vegas

Recent education research has focused much more on the learning, social outcomes and schooling experiences of boys. Boys are more likely to be held back, suspended or expelled — or to drop out of school altogether. This conference helps educators support the unique neurochemistry of the male brain and improve academic outcomes.

social emotional learning forum logo

Social-Emotional Learning Forum
Atlanta | San Antonio

Truly effective schools not only help students pass their academic exams and state-mandated tests, but also prepare those students to pass the tests of life. Ironically, research shows that helping young people manage their emotions and build positive relationships not only prepares them for “real life,” but also helps them succeed academically. The Social-Emotional Learning Forum focuses on research-based and classroom-originated interventions, lessons and curriculums that help students manage their emotions, achieve goals, express heart-felt empathy for others, maintain positive relationships and make successful personal decisions.
