2020 PCPCS Innovation Conference

A unique guide to attending PCPCS 2020/21 Innovation Conference
Why we recommend attending
Date: Thursday, October 22, 2020 from 8:00am – 4:00pm EDT

Public schools and school systems are not broken; however, they were never designed to maximize the probability of academic success for all students. It will take reimagining and redesigning high quality and effective educational practices to achieve success in our school systems. This must start with charter schools. The foundation of the charter school law in Pennsylvania emphasizes “that charter schools will serve as laboratories for innovation on behalf of all Pennsylvania students”.

There are 3 essential reasons why we think it is worth attending PCPCS 2020/21 Innovation Conference.

1. It is specifically designed for the public-school community. Innovative leaders from across the public-school community are coming together and sharing best practices. There is bound to be much great information to take back.

2. The conference will highlight the most innovative educational practices of our time. Dealing with the pandemic and the challenges it has placed on the educational community, we would need to develop and adopt new innovative practices to ensure student success.

3. The conference is virtual, and although it will last throughout the day, it would allow dropping in and out as schedule allows. The structure of the conference is also concise and presents implementable information. See the attached agenda.

We here at Nyman will be in attendance. Join other educational leaders and us!

Goal: be prepared to delivery exceptional therapy services to our exceptional students in any environment.

  • Classroom
    1. Identify all pertinent sources of information (IEP, case files, logs). Insure online and offline access to information for the school year.
    2. Establish relationships with all teachers and staff. Exchange contact information. Establish frequency of touch points.
    3. Establish relationships with all students on caseload and parents wherever possible. Collect contact information.
    4. Introduce students and families to alternative service delivery mechanisms, such as tele-therapy, as a backup plan only, in case in-person instruction at the school isn’t possible.
  • Community
    1. Establish relationships with Special Education coordinators, other intermediates for case support.
  • Online
    1. Utilizing Nyman’s tele-intervention platform, add all students on the caseload onto the platform and confirm if sufficient technology is available to deliver service remotely.
