Special education law is extremely complex and disputes in this area often give rise to litigation. This training will help you understand how to provide all students with a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) and properly address complex issues related to student placement, program, discipline and due process.

Today’s challenges can be so overwhelming that they consume the agenda of our schools and school leaders. However, many schools showing the most rapid improvements are led by administrators who have taken control of improvement initiatives rather than simply responding to the demands being placed upon them by the latest requirements from the state or national level.
In this session, Dr. Bill Daggett will explain how the leaders of these rapidly improving schools created an understanding of and support for needed school improvement initiatives with their staff, board, and community. He will provide guidance on how to create an action plan that focuses on both today’s challenges and, equally as important, a series of emerging trends that will have major impacts on our schools.

Google Camp is conducted in an Edcamp format. Edcamp is a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers, administrators and their needs. What makes Edcamp an unconference? Unlike traditional conferences which have schedules set months in advance by the people running the conference, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions. All of the space and time are reserved for the things the people there want to talk about, with the focus of GoogleCamp on all things Google. Topics covered may include: Chromebooks in the Classroom, Google Apps Management, Google+ Handouts, YouTube, Going Google, Completely Customizing Chrome to Make Your Life Awesome, Google Scripts, Google Apps for Mobile Devices, Deep Dive with Drive, and Google Glass Demo.
All participants will receive Google Chromecast! Space is limited!

This interactive two-day institute will focus upon actions school leaders can take to build a culture that promotes Common Core implementation in all subject areas and grade levels. Identification of collaborative practices to dismantle the silo model and provide the underpinnings for real change and identifying what Common Core instructional strategies look and sound like in real classrooms will be the focus of Day One. On Day Two, the focus is on the all-important conversations around teaching and learning that are essential to growth. Leaders will have the opportunity to hone their skills with difficult and important conversations around the observation process and learn how to implement a process to get teachers looking at student work as a primary data source.
