Every Kid, Every Skill — to the Mastery Level
Tuesday, October 11 from 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM ET Presented by Dr. Gene Kerns, Chief Academic Officer, Renaissance
Early grades skills represent the foundation on which all literacy depends. But do your assessment tools adequately track these skills at a sufficiently granular level?
From our friends at School Safety:
Please join the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) for the 2022 National Summit on K-12 School Safety and Security on November 1-3, 2022. This three-day, virtual event will convene school safety experts, practitioners, and leaders from across the country to discuss current threats in school safety and explore research-informed strategies for addressing security challenges and risks in K-12 schools.
Registration is now open for the Summit and attendance is free of charge. Sessions are planned for all members of the K-12 community and will include keynote remarks, one-on-one interviews, and panel discussions on issues such as targeted violence, violence prevention, cybersecurity, emergency planning, and physical security. The event is designed to foster a nationwide dialogue on school safety, as well as equip school stakeholders and personnel with resources, training, and expertise to apply in their local school settings and communities.

On-Demand Webinar: MTSS for Educators
When it comes to multi-tiered support systems, how can you ensure all stakeholders get the support they need?
Join Dr. Matthew Cheeseman, Superintendent at Beaufort County Schools and NC NERESA Region 1 Superintendent of the Year, and Dr. Tim Hudson, Chief Learning Officer at DreamBox Learning, as they discuss innovative and inclusive approaches to MTSS programs in this on-demand webinar.
