How can schools build life skills and academic skills in their students?
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Learn and share how educators are addressing all the competencies — academic and nonacademic — that students need to be successful in school and life. This core conversation is an opportunity for educators to discuss how they are overcoming the pressure to focus only on academics and instead targeting the whole child. Offer up and take in strategies and skills that your schools use to address the barriers and challenges to prioritizing social-emotional, entrepreneurial, or professional competencies in your schools. Come prepared to share your experiences!
