The Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta will host 4 conferences in one location:   School Discipline Conference Enhancing Student Success While Insuring Equity Drives Renewed Focus on School Discipline & Classroom Management Many facets of school life have been transformed over the past two decades. Curriculum has changed dramatically, technology continues to be enhanced, and assessment has become far more rigorous. Yet, in many schools, discipline remains much the same. Traditional exclusionary “consequences” – office referrals, in-school suspensions, out-of-school suspensions and expulsion – have the unintended result of removing the most academically at-risk students from the classroom. Citing current research in both the U.S. and Canada, advocacy groups and government agencies have supported an end to exclusionary and zero-tolerance policies, saying they are applied unfairly to minorities and student with special needs. In recent years, schools have begun moving toward progressive discipline, restorative practices, PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) and other alternative methodologies. But which of these systems actually works? And how can they be successfully implemented? Now in its seventh year, the School Discipline Conference provides a forum where educators can gather information on various approaches and philosophies. It will assemble internationally recognized experts and speakers and will feature evidence-based programs as well as promising new approaches developed by practitioners.   At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference The At-Risk & Struggling Students 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).  Millions more are considered at-risk because they exhibit ongoing disciplinary problems, impulsive behavior, truancy issues and have become frustrated or disengaged.  The long-term cost of failing to engage these students is tremendous, since they are much less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and to achieve economic self-sufficiency.  Join us in Atlanta to gain valuable insights and to explore practical ways to help this critical portion of your school’s population.   Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference For the past 11 years, the Girl Bullying Conference has brought focus to the problem of relational aggression among girls. Quite naturally, 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. Now in its 12th year, the Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference will be more accessible – with locations in Orlando and Atlanta. This unique gathering will help counselors, principals, teachers, social workers and other professionals understand the latest research and field-tested strategies designed to address relational aggression and to build positive, supportive relationships among girls.   Innovative Teaching Strategies Conference The National Conference on Innovative Teaching Strategies is coming to Atlanta! This event will assemble internationally recognized innovators together with practicing educators and consultants who are currently finding success with promising fresh approaches and research-based methodologies. 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. This forum will provide a unique opportunity to learn key insights from experts and colleagues from around the country.   Boy Brains & Engagement Conference Boys are more likely to be held back, suspended or expelled than girls.  They are also more likely to drop out of school, and comprise only 43 percent of college students.  This conference will help educators understand and support the unique neurochemistry of the male brain to help keep them engaged them throughout their school years.
