Pre Conference Option 1: Grizzly Youth Academy Tour
Limited Capacity seats available

Grizzly Youth Academy is structured as a “military boarding school,” providing structure and support 24/7 for youth who previously struggled in school due to academic and social problems. Working as individuals and in groups, cadets develop skills and habits to overcome obstacles that have held them back in the past, and learn to succeed. In addition to academics, Grizzly Academy takes a deeper holistic approach, focusing on the whole person. Our aim and philosophy is to produce well-rounded, competent graduates who successfully and immediately transition into the workforce, higher education, vocational schools, or enlist in the military.

Help! Trauma is Impacting Our Students
Our students, families, and districts face many challenges of complexity that impact their mental health. In addition, these challenges externalize through behaviors which then show up in the classroom and at home. This training will look at reasons behind disproportionality, suspension rates, and servicing students of color from the lens of intersectionality between trauma and equity. Participants will gain experiential understanding in the "why" behind the low attendance rates and high suspension rates. Participants will also learn strategies to bridge the gap between unwanted externalized behaviors and gain applicable tools to increase rapport and relationship. We will discuss the tier 1, tier 2, tier 3 and tier 4 students and how to best support all students through Trauma Informed Care

Addressing Truancy for Students with IEP's & 504's
Limited Capacity seats available

Truancy and students with disabilities is one of the most challenging issues faced by administrators and special educators, implicating virtually every aspect of the IDEA and Section 504. Attendance issues pertaining to students with IEPs or 504 plans must be handled with care. Although these students are subject to compulsory education laws, administrators must be aware of how attendance issues may lead to a suspicion of a disability triggering the requirement to assess the student and, if eligible, develop an appropriate IEP or 504 Plan. Administrators also need to avoid discriminatory application of attendance policies. Finally, disciplining these students by removing them from school may trigger the requirement to conduct a manifestation determination.
