The Power of Belonging – Supporting Student Success and Well-Being
New date: Thursday, May 2, 2024

Discover how the power of belonging can transform student experience at our peer-led showcase for public schools. Engage with and learn from educators at other NEASC Accredited schools who will share best practices and actionable examples of how to:

  • cultivate a culture of belonging
  • develop an effective and inclusive curriculum
  • engage students as active learners
  • implement the Vision of the Graduate
  • support all students 

The importance of belonging is an integral component of the NEASC Standards for Accreditation for public schools, and the 2024 Showcase continues this theme. Participants will learn how to further align their own schools with the Standards for Accreditation and implement new strategies for growth while exploring real-world examples of best practices from their peers.

Who should attend?

This event is open to teachers, students, counselors, administrators, or other personnel in K-12 schools. Team attendance is highly encouraged.

Please note that though this event has been designed for educators in public schools/districts in the US, we welcome participants from other NEASC Accredited schools who wish to learn with us.
