Building on recent data* that shows the American public values measures beyond traditional academics as indicators of school success, the 2016 Educators Connect for Success conference will highlight ways educators can make connections among students, schools, and their communities and focus on placing students at the center of their learning.
We will explore the interaction and connectedness of:
- traditional academic measures,
- non-academic skills and dispositions, and;
- the physical, social, and emotional well-being as measures of student success.
We owe it to our students to consider all of the factors that impact their learning.
Together, we will create a vision for the Whole Student, Whole School approach to learning.
