The JC Penney Conference Center Details:

Participants of this conference will learn the philosophy and values that guide successful practice and quality instruction, and understand the critical role of education leaders in education equity. We will examine proven strategies to building partnerships that consider all stakeholders, including students, educators, parents, school personnel and the surrounding community. Presenters will also highlight opportunities to affect change within schools and communities. Those attending Education Equity Matters will also be introduced to the concepts and leaders of the SWIFT Center, a national technical assistance center that supports academic and behavioral outcomes of all students. The SWIFT Center is committed to eliminating silos in education, and bridging general and special education to create powerful learning opportunities. Each workshop during the conference has specific objectives that allow participants to take principles and apply them immediately to their schools and communities.
