 Session Descriptions 

Be The Change; Rethinking How We Do School

Presenter: Dr. Keely Roberts, Superintendent, Zion Elementary District 6

Overview:  Join us for a conversational-style presentation about how Zion Elementary District 6, a district with an approximately 90% FRL rate, is transforming it’s academic programming.  Come hear the specifics on how we have rethought “how we do school” including how we have redesigned literacy and MTSS instruction, retooled the school day to grow student outcomes and developed some key partnerships that allow us, even in this highly unstable time in public education, to foster innovative programming on a tight budget.  In this session you will hear about our journey and discover how you can leverage these takeaways in your district. 


 Funding the Change

Presenter: Kathy Krapf, Funding Expert,

Overview:  Kathy will be explaining the funding landscape as it pertains to Wisconsin and Illinois. She will be touching on federal and state grants as well as explaining how to become better prepared as funding cycles come and go.
