The welcome will be followed by a keynote address from Dr. Robin F. Goodman, Ph. D., A.T .R.-BC. Titled “Looking Back to Look Ahead: What Does the Past Tell Us About our Future?,” the keynote will discuss where we are and where we’re headed. COVID-19 has brought the issues of individual and collective trauma and grief into sharp focus. Children, families, medical and mental health providers have all been challenged by feelings of sadness, worry, and a loss of control. Lessons learned from past tragedies and crises will be discussed to inform our resilient path forward, even though we might be weary, there is hope.

10:30 a.m.–11:15 a.m. Workshop I

Pandemic Recovery and Resilience for Schools

11:30 a.m.–12:15 p.m. Workshop II

Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity
Led by John Krownapple, Former School Administrator, Author

Too often, equity implementation reinforces a vicious cycle of failure, largely because the keys to success are missing. Learn how to make equity actionable through the concepts of dignity and belonging. Acquire a proven framework that has helped practitioners get their equity implementation right and create the conditions for every student to thrive.
