(Mis)Behavior in the Classroom: Carrot, Stick or ..?

Thursday, August 17, 2023 (11:30 AM - 1:00 PM) (PDT)


Additional space has been added, so there are a few spaces open.

Changes in student behavior and discipline policies are impacting the experience of children and teachers in our classrooms. What do teachers, counselors, students and parents need to do to respond to behavioral issues fairly and effectively? Further, what impacts are we seeing as a community as these students leave the K-12 system? Why are students of color and with disabilities disproportionally impacted?

Join us for insights about the current direction of student behavior and discipline in our schools and how we as a community can respond.
