PROMISING PRACTICES TO SUPPORT
 STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH | July 24
Find out what teams in schools and districts like yours are doing now to build informed and effective practices to support student mental health in new ways: partnering with outside agencies to bring support services in-district; building trauma awareness and informed practices by reaching out to bus drivers, cafeteria staff, aides, monitors and others who interact directly with students; restorative practices; reducing stigma; realistic, sustainable, and replicable strategies to support all students; listening to student voice; and the new mental health curricular requirement.

CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE CLASSROOMS, SCHOOLS,
 AND DISTRICTS: SYSTEMIC APPROACHES FOR IMPACT | July 25
What is a ‘culturally responsive’ school? How do schools and districts create systems to build safe, welcoming climates that go beyond the annual food fair to truly celebrate diversity and honor student differences? How do service providers interact to coordinate interventions for children in need? How are parents made to feel like integral partners on the school team? This enlightening and engaging session will focus on promising practices in districts like yours that are beating the odds. Be prepared to think, engage, and leave with ideas and actions to share and implement over the next school year.

Kristen Campbell Wilcox

Kristen Campbell Wilcox, Phd, Associate Professor, Educational Theory and Practice Department, School of Education, University at Albany, Research and Development Director NYKids

Kristen Campbell Wilcox is an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Theory and Practice, University at Albany, State University of New York and Research and Development Director for NYKids- a public-private research-practice partnership that conducts, disseminates, and uses odds-beating school research to improve student outcomes in New York state. Kristen teaches research methodology as well as courses on curriculum and instruction for diverse students. Her research interests focus on the intersections of national and state policy, leadership, curriculum, instruction and diverse student outcomes. Wilcox’s teaching and research has been shaped by a series of studies conducted since 2005 investigating processes and practices related to odds-beating student outcomes. This research has informed the development of a set of tools and institutes that guide school leadership teams through a research-based, goal-setting process for defining problems and collecting and analyzing evidence to measure progress (called COMPASS-AIM). This work addresses the development of systems for continuous improvement and focuses educators’ attention on system-wide culturally-responsive and sustaining processes and practices to prepare children and adolescents for secondary and post-secondary academic demands.
