2017 Workshops

1.) Restorative Justice- an alternative to suspension/expulsion
Nicholas Bradford- Founder, National Center for Restorative Justice

9:00am-12:00pm

Nicholas Bradford is passionate about conflict.  He doesn't view conflict as a bad thing, but as an opportunity to dive deep into the root causes and develop some skills around how we deal with conflict in our daily lives.  He’s had years of experience working with youth around conflict.  He has taught in behavior programs in schools, worked with young men returning from prison, and has built and facilitated ropes course experiences.

 Are you tired of seeing your students with IEPs routinely suspended or even expelled?  There are alternatives!  This workshop will not only introduce the concept of restorative justice but address the issues around implementing such a model.  Mr. Bradford currently is working with several districts in the state (Seattle, Highline, Tacoma) to implement such models.

 2.) An in-depth discussion around the Manifestation Determination
Carl Corbin,
General Counsel, of the public law firm School and College Legal Services of California.
1:00pm-4:00pm

 The objectives of this presentation will be to review the laws and regulations pursuant to the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) with a detailed discussion of discipline for special education students and the appropriate completion of a manifestation determination meeting.  The workshop will be delivered through use of a Power Point presentation along with supplemental materials to include excerpts from legal decisions.
