  List Roster    Details: (Event ID = 3258)   Registration: [Register or Cancel ONLINE]  Join Amy Maus, MSW, LCSW from West County Psychological Associates as she presents strategies to help students in your schools. Many students are bounding back into schools this year, eager to see their friends and hoping for a “return to normal” with class activities, field trips, the arts, and sports. Other students aren’t exactly “bounding in,” per se, but they come. They understand that school is, simply, what you do. Then there are those students who are reluctant or refusing to come to school. Some are truly anxious about school in general, worried about health and safety, or uncomfortable leaving home. Others were socially anxious or introverted to start, and learning from home during the pandemic has been very comfortable for them. Still others just want to be left alone to sleep or play video games all day instead of coming to school. This year, more than ever, schools must have effective strategies to respond to these school-avoidant students.

Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM   Cost: $ 125   Presenter: Dr. Todd Pettit and Dr. Jody Wood   CPDUs: 6

  List Roster    Details: (Event ID = 3257)   Registration: [Register or Cancel ONLINE]  Cost: PDC-$75, NON PDC-$125 Mission statements often state that we value all learners, meeting their individual academic and social-emotional needs to make them life-long learners. We view students through our personal lens that often can unintentionally be filtered by bias. This is often the case when we encounter students who we have difficulty relating to because their story and identity is not what we are familiar with or can relate to. This Academy will offer the opportunity for you to reflect upon leading with justice for all, giving reflection opportunities, guidance and tools when addressing students who identify as LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning).
