National Youth At-Risk Conference, Savannah, Georgia

I will be presenting three sessions at the National Youth At-risk Conference in Savannah, Georgia March 1 and 2nd.

Pre-Conference:  March 1st- 2PM -5PM  Helping Students Graduate:  Tools and Strategies to Stop Students From Dropping Out

Using the 15 effective strategies developed by the National Dropout Prevention Center and tools developed as “best practices” by some of America’s outstanding schools and programs, workshop participants will not only learn what to do but how to aid at-risk youth to graduate.

March 2 1:15 – 2:30 PM and 3PM – 4:15PM

What Do Successful Leaders of At-Risk Learners Do to Raise Academic Performance and Improve School Cultures?

Educators are aware that some schools support a culture that is not only hostile to learning but is toxic to students, parents and staff.  We contacted 300 high performing, high minority, high poverty schools and asked the school leaders how they were transforming a hostile culture into a supportive learning environment.
