The School Discipline Conference provides a forum for educators to learn about various approaches to classroom management including progressive discipline, restorative practices, Positive Behavior Interventions & Support and Responsibility-Centered Discipline.

Take advantage of this opportunity to learn new insights, tools and strategies for reaching and teaching students. Compare best practices with educators in different geographic locations and different socio-economic environments.

SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING FORUM

Nashville. Chicago.

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. Research shows that helping young people manage their emotions and build positive relationships not only prepares them for “real life,” it also helps them succeed academically.
