The Dropout Team at the Region 10 ESC is pleased to announce that we are hosting our first virtual conference! The 2016 Virtual Dropout Conference will be held on May 19, 2016 and participants will have the option of engaging in three strands (elementary school, middle school, and high school). The opening session will begin at 8:30 am and the final session will conclude at 5:00 pm. As this is a virtual conference, you can choose to participate online the entire day or check in for specific sessions of your interest. Spend the day with us learning new strategies for the identification, prevention, and recovery of students who are considering leaving or have left the education system. Additional topics will include legal mandates, meeting the social and emotional needs of students identified as ‘high risk’, alternative education options, foster care education, homeless education, and Career and Technical Education. More information will be released here and on the dropout webpage (www.region10.org/dropout) with a flier to follow in January. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits will be made available.
