Testimonials

"This was my first time attending the Summit and I must truly say it was the best Conference I have ever attended. The sessions were very informative, inspiring, and motivating"


"I've been a teacher for 15 years and I learned more from this Conference than I've learned from any other Professional Development I've ever attended. I can't wait to return to school and share with my colleagues!"


"Wow! I loved all of the Keynote Speakers - each one was inspiring, thoughtful and reminded me why I got into teaching. I'm so glad I attended and learned strategies to help my most difficult students."





The Innovative Schools Summit San Antonio will host the following 4 conferences in one location!



Register for the At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference with a purchase order.

The At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies that educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students experience success in school. More than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). Millions more are considered at-risk because they exhibit ongoing disciplinary problems, impulsive behavior, truancy issues and have become frustrated or disengaged. The long-term cost of failing to engage these students is tremendous, since they are much less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Join us in San Antonio to gain valuable insights and to explore practical ways to help this critical portion of your school’s population.

Register for the School Climate & Culture Forum with a purchase order.

Scholars struggle to consistently define and distinguish the terms, but educators agree on the need to transform both “climate” and “culture” to improve academic outcomes. This event features practical, real-world initiatives that are successfully transforming the quality, character and personality of schools. It showcases programs, assessments and tools proven to improve school culture and climate. Evidence-based and research-based interventions will be introduced, while the forum also highlights high-potential efforts currently being implemented in the laboratory of everyday school life.

Register for the School Discipline Conference with a purchase order.

Enhancing Student Success While Insuring Equity Drives Renewed Focus on School Discipline & Classroom Management

Many facets of school life have been transformed over the past two decades. Curriculum has changed dramatically, technology continues to be enhanced, and assessment has become far more rigorous. Yet, in many schools, discipline remains much the same.

Traditional exclusionary “consequences” – office referrals, in-school suspensions, out-of-school suspensions and expulsion – have the unintended result of removing the most academically at-risk students from the classroom. Citing current research in both the U.S. and Canada, advocacy groups and government agencies have supported an end to exclusionary and zero-tolerance policies, saying they are applied unfairly to minorities and student with special needs.

In recent years, schools have begun moving toward progressive discipline, restorative practices, PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) and other alternative methodologies. But which of these systems actually works? And how can they be successfully implemented?

Now in its eighth year, the School Discipline Conference provides a forum where educators can gather information on various approaches and philosophies. It will assemble internationally recognized experts and speakers and will feature evidence-based programs as well as promising new approaches developed by practitioners.

Register for the Wired Differently & Trauma-Informed Schools Conference with a purchase order.

Helping Students Who Are Wired Differently Succeed in Inclusive Classrooms


About 1 million students served under the U.S. Individuals with Disabilities Education Act have been diagnosed with autism or other behavioral disorders. About 60 percent of these students spend the majority of their time in an inclusive classroom setting.

Yet the Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 5 students (upwards of 13 million) are, in fact, diagnosable for mental or behavioral challenges. Some parents choose not to reveal a diagnosis, while many students remain undiagnosed – which means that, even if not by design, every classroom in North America is inclusive by default.

Now in its eighth year, the Wired Differently Conference will be held this year in Atlanta. A wide array of critical insights and best practices will be shared for reaching and teaching students with emotional and behavioral conditions – including Asperger’s and other autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder and more.

Principals, other administrators, general ed teachers, special needs teachers, resource teachers and paraprofessionals attending the Wired Differently Conference will benefit from tools, recommendations and strategies for working with this often high-potential portion of the student population.
