Join in a celebration of effective strategies at the 25th Annual Effective Schools Conference. In this silver anniversary year, Dr. Larry Lezotte and a host of other education leaders will explore the myriad challenges schools face in the new millennium. What does it mean to be an effective school in the 21st century? As student diversity increases, educators must possess greater cultural understanding. As technology advances, schools must keep pace. These and many more topics will be addressed at this anticipated event.

Tackle Today's Education Challenges With the 2nd Generation of Effective Schools Correlates
Keynote presenters will apply the Correlates to the most current, crucial education issues.

Safe and Orderly Environment
It’s time to place increased emphasis on the presence of certain desirable behaviors (such as cooperative team learning). Learn how second-generation schools will be places where students actually help one another.

Climate of High Expectations for Success
High expectations are not “one size fits all.” Explore the changes that must take place in order to successfully implement this expanded concept of high expectations successfully.

Instructional Leadership
Recognize how the leadership function is now about creating a “community of shared values” focused on the critical mission of identifying what the school community cares about most.

Clear and Focused Mission
Examine how this second-generation Correlate shifts toward a balance between higher-level learning and the prerequisite basic skills needed for mastery.

Opportunity to Learn and Student Time on Task
Many educators agree that the issue of too much to teach and not enough time to teach it continues to intensify. Focus on the need for determining essential outcomes and comfortably practicing “organized abandonment.” Empower yourself to ask the question “What goes and what stays?”

Frequent Monitoring of Student Progress
Investigate two new questions stimulated by these pivotal times in education: “What’s worth knowing?” and “How will we know when they know it?”

Home-School Relations
The relationship between educators and parents has moved from shadowy territory to a full-fledged authentic partnership in student learning. Discover new ways of thinking about home-school relations.
