Join WestEd and the Center on School Turnaround and Improvement at the National ESEA Conference, which will be held on February 1–4, at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indiana.
This year’s theme for the hybrid event is “Lift Up,” emphasizing evidence-based practices to lift up students to reach their potential through maximized access and expanded opportunities. With 130 sessions, the conference also focuses on high-quality professional development and collaboration and partnership, lifting up educators and administrators, parents and families.
Conference lectures and sessions are organized by strands and explore challenges faced in federal education programs, including family involvement and engagement, cultural understanding and support, and developing practices that ensure the success of every child, regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, language, ability, sexual orientation, or income.
On Thursday, Feb.4, WestEd’s Dr. Terry Hofer will present “A Strengths-Based Approach to Rapidly Improving Schools.” Terry helps lead WestEd’s Center on School Turnaround and Improvement. In his presentation, participants will hear examples of how strengths were prioritized and built to foster conditions for rapid school improvement.
