The Impact of the Trauma-Sensitive Schools Approach on Educators. Cori Canty Woessner, University of Denver

This Ignite is a provocative, visual presentation of how the Trauma-Sensitive Schools approach impacts educator satisfaction and teacher self-ef cacy, as well as student outcomes. This approach is guided by attachment theory and the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study. Audience members will understand how school leadership effectively implements the Trauma- Sensitive Schools approach with educators in order to create school cultures in which educators feel safe enough to take instructional risks in the classroom.

Triple Whammies Impacting K-12 Leadership Preparation in the U.S. Tawannah Gail Allen, High Point University; Mariela A. Rodriguez, University of Texas at San Antonio; Carol A. Mullen, Virginia Tech

This session addresses how to prepare aspiring administrators attending minority-serving institutions to lead in the midst of changing demographics of America’s K-12 education landscape. Three maps, the racial typology of U.S. counties and the geographic locations of HBCUs and HSIs, when superimposed into one map, illustrate the alignment of MSIs in majority–minority populated areas. We explain how these areas are indicative of students experiencing signi cant cultural–generation gaps in their K–12 schooling experiences.

Gang Awareness and Classroom Educators. Maya Suzuki Daniels, Loyola Marymount University

Gangs and schools have co-existed in the same areas of South Central Los Angeles for almost 50 years. Yet teachers receive little to no training on gangs in the area. This leaves both students and teachers in positions of great powerlessness. Furthermore, this oversight violates Section 51624 of the California Education Code. This presentation elucidates a potential solution to these issues in the form of community-based gang awareness trainings for educators.

Educational Leadership Beyond School Walls: Engaging Immigrant Latino Families by Learning From Community-Based Initiatives. Elizabeth Gil, Michigan State University

Educational leaders can tap into existing community-based ties of the increasingly diverse populations of students and families they serve. They can re-envision leadership by looking beyond school walls in order to better understand and connect with their schools’ students and families. This presentation encourages leaders to refresh practice by learning from effective practices community-based initiatives implement to engage their constituents and invites leaders to rede ne student success by considering holistic aspects of students’ schooling experiences.

Cross-Sector Collaboration to Address Chronic Absenteeism. Joshua Childs, University of Texas at Austin

The Ignite session will explore how chronic absenteeism is a critical educational issue that schools and districts should focus on in order to improve educational outcomes
and experiences for their students. The session will highlight the importance of chronic absenteeism, discuss how a countywide multi-agency approach can help to engage stakeholders, and how leaders with the support of multiple organizations can implement policy changes at the school and district level around chronic absenteeism.
