All children rely on relationships and systems of support to develop, learn, and thrive. How can we transform our schools and communities into a powerful, integrated system of support for every student? We are teaming up with the Center for Optimized Student Support at Boston College for a one-day conference that will highlight the science, practice, and potential of integrated student support to create opportunity for all.

Devens Common Center | 31 Andrews Parkway, Devens, MA

There’s no shortage of innovative ideas to reform education. But why do some new ideas stick and others don’t? Too often, well-intended policies unravel as they hit the ground. We want to help. We know making large-scale, effective improvement is hard. So we developed a step-by-step process to help educators make sustainable changes. On October 25 we held a one-day conference on designing and implementing improvement strategies in schools.

Omni Parker House Hotel, Kennedy Room | Boston, MA

Too often, educators tackle problems in isolation. But when we come together to address challenges, we multiply our ideas, expertise, resources, and knowledge. Networks of educators can work together to find solutions for the problems they share, each benefiting from seeing what works and what doesn’t work in other classrooms, schools, or districts. Join us on October 3 to hear about successful networks in Massachusetts and across the nation and learn how this approach can help educators find and implement solutions that stick.
