The Use of Individualized Learning Plans to Help Students to be College and Career Ready
Forum
February 15, 2013

“The Use of Individualized Learning Plans to Help Students to be College and Career Ready” is one of a series of Capitol Hill forums hosted by the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF).

Many states have adopted policies that require the use of ILPs and research is starting to show its benefits.

Rethinking Discipline: Strategies at Work in Schools Today
Web-based Event
February 5, 2013
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM   (Eastern)
Zero-tolerance policies, which require out-of-school suspension or expulsion for certain inappropriate behaviors, have become the go-to disciplinary approach in many schools, though research suggests they have some downsides. Education Week will present a webinar on two alternate approaches that are more focused on changing behavior, restorative practices and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Educators at Haut Gap Middle and other Charleston, SC, schools, say PBIS has transformed student behavior and increased academic performance. At Christian Fenger Academy High in Chicago, the restorative approach to student behavior teaches discipline through discussion, support, and “peace circles.”
