What to Expect at the Innovative Schools Summit?

What Do Educators Have to Say about the Summit?

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.

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 eighth 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.

The School Discipline Conference is a must-attend gathering for principals, deans, teachers and counselors focused on improving academic performance by applying the most current innovations and research to behavior intervention and classroom management. Special focus will be given to supportive, non-exclusionary disciplinary practices.
