Student success, employee experience and community confidence: three interrelated imperatives that are individually complex and collectively daunting. As a district-wide challenge, Superintendents often struggle to know where to start and are discouraged when progress in one area leads to new problems in another.

This Spring, EAB invites you to participate in an exclusive, two-day summit where up to 35 superintendents from districts around the country will gather to hear EAB’s latest best-practice research, take part in hands-on activities, and engage in intimate conversations to exchange ideas and expand their networks. This event is designed to help superintendents address three top-of-mind issues impacting all three terrains and focus on rebuilding stability and sustainability in 2023.  This experience will give superintendents protected time and space to step away from daily crisis, connect with peers from across the nation, reflect on lessons learned, and set intentions for the year ahead.

Topics will include:

Findings from EAB’s Voice of the Superintendent: Results, Key Takeaways, and Essential Conversations for 2023

Superintendents often report feeling siloed as they work to tackle their district’s greatest challenges and want to know more about what their peers are thinking and doing. EAB’s 2023 Voice of the Superintendent Survey collected responses from approximately 200 superintendents across the nation on their day-to-day experiences, sentiments towards the role, and their priorities for the coming year.

This session will provide insight into Superintendents’ perspectives on key issues related to student success, employee engagement, and community confidence in public education today. Participants will have the opportunity to benchmark their experience with their peers, and walk away with next steps.

Engaging Today’s Parents to Reduce Chronic Absenteeism

Chronic absenteeism rates have doubled since before the pandemic, leading to a cascade of consequences that impact student success, employee morale, and district budgets. Research shows that more parents today are keeping their students at home by choice – and more students are permitted by parents to make the choice themselves. Despite an enormous amount written on this topic today, Superintendents are still searching to sustainable answers to this growing problem. 

This session addresses the existing and emerging root causes driving attendance challenges today and presents a framework for communication and collaboration with today’s parents to get students back in school.

Building the Conditions for Positive Student Behavior

Seventy-eight percent of over 1100 teachers nationwide identified student behavior as top concern in the EAB’s Fall 2022 survey on student behavior. The significant increase in disruptive student behavior over the past year has left educators overwhelmed and parents frustrated. The most confusing aspect of this challenge is that countless research-based practices and intervention frameworks already exist for addressing student behavior, but very few districts have managed to realize the promised results. Why? EAB uncovered four pervasive barriers to effective behavior management that district leaders need to address today.

In this session, participants will learn how to overcome the biggest barriers to behavior management and how to build the conditions for positive student behavior. This includes diagnosing the shortcoming in their existing behavioral management strategy and learning teacher-approved solutions to achieve the environmental conditions districts must create for students and teachers to thrive.
