We are excited to announce that Utah State Journalism Professor Matt LaPlante and Speak Up Survey developer Julie Evans will host a conversation on how to address the challenge of maintaining contact with graduates of at-risk student schools and programs. The most common accountability question for schools serving "at promise" students is, "What do your students do after they leave you?" But unlike students with stable homes and traditional trajectories, our students can be difficult to follow. Share your strategies and learn from others about how to build long-term engagement for facilitating accountability and sharing success.
Other Conversation Sessions include:
Jon Zaff and Craig McClay from America's Promise Alliance in a conversation about how educators and researchers can respectfully reference disengaged youth.
Nelson Smith, National Association of Charter School Authorizers, and Jody Ernst, Momentum Strategies, in a conversation about the many state, district and school level efforts to identify and implement meaningful accountability systems for schools serving at promise students.
Leslie Talbot, Aretha Miller and Robert Clark in a conversation about how school design principles from New York's Pathways to Opportunity Project findings may fit other school systems.
Nick Mathern, Gateway to College, in a conversation about how programs featuring relevant post-secondary training and support are powerful motivators attracting youth to re-engage with their education.
Chuck Wolfe, K12 Inc., in a conversation sharing innovative strategies and persistent challenges in providing wrap around services for at promise students in the unique environment of virtual schools.
