    Transforming Remedial Education to Improve Postsecondary Attainment

    12:00pm-1:30pm

    American Youth Policy Forum and Complete College America invite you to the following Lunchtime Forum and Discussion Transforming Remedial Education to Improve Postsecondary Attainment With recent estimates suggesting that over 50% of all college students require remedial education and research indicating that remedial education students rarely earn a postsecondary credential – it is critical that the transformation of remedial education become part of every state strategy to dramatically increase college attainment rates. Fortunately, new research and innovative practice are demonstrating that dramatic improvements in student success can be achieved. However, without state and federal action, this transformation will be slow and inevitably fall short of its potential. This event will explore how state and federal policy can accelerate proven reforms that will be central to meeting state and national goals to increase college attainment rates in the U.S. PRESENTERS: Stan Jones, President, Complete College America Dr. Tristan Denley, Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Austin Peay State University Katie Hern, Chabot College and Director of the California Acceleration Project Dr. Matt Gianneschi, Vice President of Policy and Programs, Education Commission of the States * * * * * DATE: Friday, July 12, 2013 TIME: 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. LOCATION: Capitol Hill, Room TBA RSVP: Please Register Here https://secure.aypf.org/np/clients/aypf/eventRegistration.jsp?event=1042 Box lunches are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, to those registered. * * * * * The American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional development organization based in Washington, DC, provides learning opportunities for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers working on youth and education issues at the national, state, and local levels.

    AYPF - State Perspectives in Expanded Learning: the Role of Statewide Afterschool Networks

    12:00pm-1:30pm

    American Youth Policy Forum invites you to the following Lunchtime Forum and Discussion State Perspectives in Expanded Learning: the Role of Statewide Afterschool Networks With demand for afterschool and summer programs reaching new heights, educators and policymakers are recognizing the benefit of a coordinated approach to expanded learning opportunities in which program providers, schools, intermediaries, nonprofits, faith based groups and other stakeholders work together to provide high quality programming. Over the last ten years, statewide afterschool networks (SANs) have played a critical role in promoting such coordination and demonstrating how expanded learning can complement and reinforce school day lessons. Prior to the formation of the networks, hundreds of organizations involved in this space were disconnected from each other and frequently not linked to schools or broader youth development efforts. Currently, these networks operate in 41 states (and are emerging in the other states) and provide a range of coordinated supports in the form of research, resources, professional development and technical assistance to state and local level stakeholders. SANs have developed valuable expertise in both policy and practice issues and are helping more kids succeed by working to ensure they have access to high-quality expanded learning opportunities. This forum will provide an overview of how the SANs support the work of afterschool providers and how they work alongside multiple stakeholders, including state agencies, community-based intermediaries and program providers. Terry Peterson, Director, After School National Resource Network, and Chairman of the Board, Afterschool Alliance, will share an overview of the work of SANs and discuss their role in supporting effective statewide policy and practice decisions in afterschool. Laveta Wills-Hale, Director of the Arkansas Out of School Network, and Michelle Doucette Cunningham, Executive Director of the Connecticut After School Network, will share their perspectives on the qualities of a highly functioning afterschool network, the supports SANs provide, and how federal policy can support or hinder such work. PRESENTERS: Michelle Doucette Cunningham, Executive Director of the Connecticut After School Network Terry Peterson, Director, After School National Resource Network Laveta Wills-Hale, Director of the Arkansas Out of School Network * * * * * DATE: Friday, September 27, 2013 TIME: 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. LOCATION: Capitol Hill, Room TBA RSVP: Please Register Here --> https://secure.aypf.org/np/clients/aypf/eventRegistration.jsp?event=1047 Box lunches are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, to those registered. * * * * * The American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional development organization based in Washington, DC, provides learning opportunities for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers working on youth and education issues at the national, state, and local levels.

    Counselor PD - Guiding Families in High School Fit and Match

    10:00am-12:00pm

    Target audience: All middle grades educators who work with families in high school choice and transition. Session Description: Understanding student-school fit and match is often one of the biggest hurdles in the school choice process. It is essential that families consider data throughout the high school choice process, but using data can feel daunting for parents and schools – which pieces of data are important? How do we best interpret and use data? This session will empower school staff to be prepared for the necessary conversations about school fit. We will focus on how to examine “best fit” for a student, considering: school performance data, curricula, school location, special programming, etc. We will bring sample student placement plans, a template for using in your school community, and a calendar for the high school choice process. If you are interested in attending on March 5th, please RSVP to Chloe Woodward-Magrane, chloe.woodward-magrane@dc.gov by COB on Friday February 28th. We hope you can join us!
