Welcome Educators!

We’re excited to invite you to an important and insightful free webinar titled “Lessons Learned from Alternative Ed that We All Can Apply in Our Schools Today.” This session is a must-attend for K-12 educators, school administrators, and anyone passionate about the evolving landscape of education.

About the Webinar

In an era where challenges like student behavior issues, poor engagement, and disconnection, once predominantly concerns of alternative education, are increasingly visible in mainstream schools, the insights from alternative education are more relevant than ever. This webinar isn’t just about exploring new territory; it’s about learning from those who have been navigating these challenges for years. Moderated by Jason Johnson from the WhyTry organization, our panel features leading voices from the National Alternative Education Association (NAEA). They’ll share their seasoned perspectives and strategies that are not only transformative in alternative settings but also increasingly vital in our broader educational landscape.

What to Expect

This panel discussion will cover a range of vital topics, including:

  • Challenging common misconceptions about alternative education.
  • Addressing widespread educational issues now appearing in mainstream settings.
  • Exploring big-picture educational focuses both locally and nationally.
  • Implementing comprehensive student support systems.
  • Embracing and benefiting from relationship-based teaching.
  • Insights into trauma-informed education.
  • Reflecting on lifelong learning in alternative and general education.

Join the Conversation

This is more than just a webinar; it’s an opportunity to join a community of educators eager to enrich their teaching practices and student engagement. Whether you’re looking for new strategies, insights, or inspiration, this event is for you. We encourage all educators to participate in this vital conversation.
