Join Jim Sporleder to learn how a community’s collective trauma responsive approach benefits all students and develops positive adult-student relationships that can change the life path of students who have lost hope. Relevant for all participants, school or district leadership teams may especially appreciate this session's emphasis on how we can accomplish a lot as a team, and will do much less if we stay in our silos. Come hear the story of Lincoln High School firsthand from Jim, who lead the effort in collaboration with community partners to become a “Trauma Informed” school and gained national attention due to a dramatic drop in out of school suspensions, increased graduation rates and the number of students going on to post-secondary education.  With this work captured in the documentary "Paper Tigers," Jim Sporleder retired in 2014 as Principal of Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, WA. and now shares his journey and lessons learned with educators across the country
