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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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

School Discipline Conference

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.
