Catching Kids Before They Fall
Find out from the principal who was at the center of the "Paper Tigers" documentary what it means to be a trauma-informed school. Under Jim Sporleder’s leadership in collaboration with community partners, Lincoln High School became a “Trauma Informed” school, gaining 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. In this presentation, Jim will walk the participants through a brief overview of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences, and how toxic stress impacts student learning and behavior. Participants will be introduced to what it means to be a Trauma-Informed School and how a trauma responsive approach is best practice for all students.

Understanding and Supporting Students with Challenging Behavior: School-wide
Supporting students with challenging behavior is complicated and requires a school-wide effort. Schools and students benefit when all staff are trained in the basics of understanding behavior and behavioral intervention. Training all staff creates a common language and skill set across administrators, teachers and staff for supporting students with challenging behavior. Schools also need personnel with more intensive training in behavioral intervention to support students with challenging behavior. This session will present a training model and free training resources (Basic FBA to BIP), including e-learning modules to help build the knowledge and skills of your staff to support students with challenging behavior.

The Lincoln High School Story… A community’s collective response to trauma
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

The Five Critical Steps to Becoming a Trauma Responsive School
This session will teach the participants the “how to” in becoming a Trauma Responsive School. Learn the basic concepts to implementing a trauma-responsive school culture that will foster the significant changes we want for every student… improved behavior, attendance, higher academic achievement and higher graduation rates. Participants will: • Look at what the current research is telling us about the impact our traditional disciplinary practices are having on our students. • Understand the difference between “doing trauma informed practices,” versus “embracing trauma responsive practices as who we are as a person, as a school, and how we interact with those we come into contact.”  • See how a trauma-responsive approach is the umbrella that becomes your school culture and strengthens everything under it. •Be introduced to the Student of Concerns Model: a powerful system for tracking our most struggling students with intentional positive adult interventions and action plans. •Walk away with an understanding of what it takes to become trauma responsive, and how to begin experiencing the significant outcomes that naturally come with this new mindset.
