Connect: Providing Equity Through Access
Devices in the hands of students have little impact if teachers are not trained to integrate technology effectively within the lesson design. The Connect initiative moves beyond devices to ensure connection and equity.  In developing the Connect initiative, our district addressed devices, internet access at home through an LTE network, and teacher training.  This session will describe the processes and strategies used to involve multiple departments, ensuring that cross department teams worked together to make decisions regarding student devices, at home internet connection, and plans for professional development.

Culture Eats Structure for Breakfast
 The #1 thing that successful school organizations have in common is that the adults work together as a team within a culture of respect. But how do we make that happen? Leadership is not a quick-fix; leadership is the art of cultivating a long-term reciprocal relationship built around teamwork and what’s best for kids. This session is presented by two principals- one elementary and one continuation high school- and will focus on how they each used the same concepts in different ways to redefine culture at their schools.  The session will focus on how to re-energize teachers to find their "why", and how to align that to who you purport yourselves to be as a school.

Preparing Ourselves and Our Students For the Future
Thinking about the future can be exciting, but also scary.  Artificial intelligence, the automation of jobs, and other innovative shifts happening all around us have an impact on education and on the future we are in charge of shaping. This presentation is meant to bring an awareness about changes in technology, which create changes in jobs, which create demands for new skill sets, which create new opportunities in education.  Participants will leave with a greater understanding of how these changes create new and exciting opportunities in education, but first require a mindset shift.  School leaders must embrace this shift before bring their staff on the journey.  This presentation will get the wheels turning and hopefully help school leaders create momentum and change.

Are You Providing a Habitat of Happiness?
Ask staff members what makes them unhappy at work, and you will hear about low salary, apathetic students and parents, and possibly an unskilled supervisor.  Did you know that most people leave their bosses not their jobs? Managed badly, some factors make people miserable. But even if they are managed wonderfully, it doesn’t make anyone work much harder or smarter.  Staff members are motivated, instead, by interesting work, challenge and increased responsibility.  These intrinsic factors answer people’s deep- seated need for growth and achievement.  Participants will walk away from this session with very doable actions and resources that help to create meaning in their staff’s day-today work.

Impacting Instruction with Innovation
As school districts continue to move further into adopting state standards and NGSS is there an opportunity for providing teachers with more options that can impact student learning, shift pedagogy, increase engagement and adopt effective tools.  Orange Unifed School District has begun infusing computer science ideology into core curriculur classrooms through a three step process.  Participants in this presentation will be introduced how the district has introduced new tools through an evaluation process that turned into hands on experiences for teachers and classroom demonstrations for school sites.  This all culminates with teachers then being able to check out tools they can use that will influence purchasing decisions. Individuals will walk away with a system that can work for nearly any technology adoption for instruction.

Maverick Leadership
Inspire the maverick in all educators – give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward to benefit all kids. Attendees will walk away with immediately applicable ways to transform the culture of their campus to provide students with the best possible opportunities for success through innovative approaches to professional learning, passion-based initiatives and inspiring examples of leadership. Rather than recommend formal lesson plans, we believe 21st century learners require more flexible strategies and mindsets in their teachers.

Education draws passionate & talented individuals to its ranks. These professionals are completely dedicated to student learning, and strive daily to connect with each student to help them achieve. Often, these motivated individuals get driven into a ‘bunker’ mentality by forces beyond their control, and take refuge in making the learning environment the best for those students within their scope of influence.

Learn how educational leaders break out of these confines and stretch their entrepreneurial muscles through innovative public-private partnerships, contests, outreach and other efforts. Inspire the maverick in all educators – using successful examples to give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward for the benefit of all kids.

Administrators and coaches consistently look for innovative ways to enhance professional learning for teachers.  Did you know that it only takes a few minutes of video footage to capture a wealth of visual and auditory information related to classroom instruction and climate?  The question is, ‘What should you be looking at’? This session provides research based information to help cultivate reflective teachers by teaching them how to distinguishing between details and evidence.  Additionally, this session provides essential tools in coaching teachers as they learn to watch personal teaching segments with purpose, and learn to prioritize and analyze evidence in efforts to promote self-directed change to instruction and delivery style.

Harmonizing Policies to Save Time, Money and Headaches Related to eDiscovery, Public Record Act Requests and Data Breaches
Technology can be a powerful tool, but it is also a source of legal headaches for educational institutions. eDiscovery has become a norm in the litigation process, Public Records Act requests are becoming a weekly occurrence, and Data Breaches are occurring with increasingly frequency. The time is now to properly align your institution’s policies and legal strategy to be better prepared for these events. Institutions should have a formalized plan for document retention and destruction that acts as a starting point for effectively handling these situations. This session will discuss these issues and strategies for best practices to reduce risk, headaches and ultimately save time and money for your district.

Preparing Our Students For A Non-Obvious Future
Today’s world is experiencing accelerated rates of change. This heightened rate and pace of change will have not only implications for the future of work, but for the focus of education. Inability of today’s educational leaders to connect these societal shifts to what it means to be truly 'career' ready will and have created skills gaps that limit our students choices and opportunities. In a time when the levels of outsourcing, automation, and enhanced achievements in artificial intelligence, as well as issues around poverty, under and unemployment, and connections between education and employment, are creating previously unforeseen shifts across all of society, we need forward thinking leaders, drenched in awareness, who can see the big opportunity arising from the chaos of a very non-obvious future. In the midst of this current and coming upheaval and disruption, we need educational leaders who can prepare our students, our educators and our organizations to survive and thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.

Hacking Social Emotional Learning
Creating a multifaceted social-emotional learning program that is both ongoing and engaging to students of all ages can be a daunting task for any school leader. Come discover the ideas/strategies one school site implemented to make SEL a priority. 

This will be a hands-on, interactive, and high-energy presentation. Participants will hear about and see examples of the various strategies, ideas, and events we implemented on our campus and in our classrooms that not only went beyond the traditional motivational speaker/assembly but made SEL as much a part of the curriculum as math or science. Participants will also get an opportunity to hear how we incorporated our upper-grade students in a variety of ways to be models for our primary students including teaching the social-emotional lessons to our K-3 classes themselves!

Data Breach Simulation
Do your emergency response plans include thoughtful, practical experience in responding to data breaches? With hacks on the rise--just like fire drills--it's important for all organizations to run through the paces of responding to a rapidly-evolving breach with public relations and legal implications. This interactive opportunity to run through a simulated data breach will provide participants with practical experience in responding to the media, angry parents, and more as they navigate a simulated data breach and develop a data breach response plan that they can take back and share out with their schools and districts.

Just How Effective Are Your Social Justice Leaders?
We must examine our beliefs and affirm, that all students  can and deserve to succeed and master rigorous standards.  Many conditions of school success are, in fact, under our control. When we affirm that virtually all students can succeed and master challenging expectations, we are compelled to seek and provide what it takes to make it happen.  Participants will hear and learn the key beliefs and actions that foster inclusion, access and opportunities for all.   We all need to aim to create schools that literally serve each and every student. It is time that we commit our practice to positioning educators as a driving force toward social justice for not only marginalized students but for ALL students.

Know Better Do Better (#KBDB)
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” —Maya Angelou.

Why change? It is quite simple- we have no option not to. Our students, our schools, our lives, our futures - are in a constant state of flux. If we are not also in a continuous state of learning and growing- ourselves and our students will be left behind. 

How do we change? We adopt the “Know Better, Do Better” mantra. 

In this session, we will provide activities to guide your educators to “discover” their “Know Better” practices. The ones that are no longer effective or supportive for students. 

Attendees will also participate in practical examples and lesson ideas to support your staffs to “Do Better” on Monday. 

This session is guaranteed to be a fun, fast paced, practical, interactive session full of heart, anecdotes, hands on learning and a good time!”
