Lives in the Balance 8th Annual Summit on
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions

Friday, November 2, 2018
Holiday Inn by the Bay, Portland, Maine

High-stakes testing, zero tolerance policies, time-outs, stickers, suspensions, detentions, and cookie-cutter interventions got you down? Ready to come up for air, recharge your CPS batteries, and connect with parents and educators who are blazing a different trail? The Eighth Annual lives in the Balance Summit is here!

This year's Summit features a full-morning keynote presentation from Julie Causton, Professor in the Inclusive and Special Education Program in the Department of Teaching and Leadership at Syracuse University, along with breakout groups for parents, educators, and clinicians. The Summit will also feature a screening of the newly released documentary film from Lives in the Balance, The Kids We Lose. So whether you're new to the CPS model or an old hand, you'll find what you're looking for. And if checking out the fall leaves in Maine is appealing, you may want to arrive a few days early.

First Breakout Sessions (1:00 to 2:30):

  • Parent Track - Basics of CPS: If you’re a parent and you’re new to the CPS model, this breakout group will provide you with the basics…so you’re ready for more in the afternoon.
  • Parent Track - Advanced CPS: If you have existing familiarity with the CPS model, you’re ready for the next level…and this breakout group will take you there.
