Participants must attend both days of the course and complete the required Application for Dissemination for each day to receive credit for AA #2000. This course will provide participants with the knowledge to 1) identify and disseminate minimum state requirements, performance standards and best practices; 2) facilitate a common language and dialogue around performance and its impact on school improvement, professional practice, and student outcomes; and 3) encourage collaboration, learning, and alignment among stakeholders. This is a high-quality, scalable, sustainable, and user-focused content and delivery model.

Administrator Academy # 1865: Principal Evaluator Competency Skill Building for Pre-Qualified Principal Evaluators
The Academy focuses on a high rate of interrater reliability using the required performance evaluation ratings. Using case studies, the participants will collect evidence and use the Illinois Standards for Principal Evaluation to rate the principals. Participants will use data collected from the case studies and compare the data to best practices for evaluating principals and assistant principals. This data will also be analyzed to prepare administrative and school-level professional development plans. Participants will prepare targeted professional development, in a collaborative and supportive way, plans that consider past results and contribute to professional and personal growth. This plan will be aligned to the school improvement plan. The instructional environment indicators will be analyzed. The purpose of the evaluation plan will be to communicate the outcomes and findings in such a manner that the principals and assistant principals set goals for improvement. The participants own personal bias will be analyzed while making these decisions. Attendees should each have a digital device (laptop, smart-phone, etc.).

HILIA Presents: Teaching Critical Communication Skills
Description of Workshop: This training discusses how to teach critical communication skills that lead to greater independence in the home, work, school, and community settings for all students regardless of communicative modality. One set of critical skills deals with expressive communication – skills individuals need to convey important messages to others. Specific skills include: requesting reinforcers; requesting help; requesting break; acceptance and rejection skills. A second set of critical skills relates to receptive communication – a person’s ability to understand important messages from others. Specific skills include: waiting; following direction; schedule following and transitions. This one-day workshop focuses on why these nine skills are the highest priority for teaching and how we teach them. The strategies covered are relevant for anyone with complex communication needs, regardless of their communication modality (e.g. Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), signing, speech).This workshop is a must for anyone working and/or living with people with complex communication needs. It is an important adjunct to training in PECS, but also stands alone for those who have not completed PECS training. Parents, care givers, and professionals alike will benefit from this day.

Pathways 2 Restorative Leadership 4 Day Professional Development Series with Kevin Jones
Participants in this 4 day professional development series will learn about the foundations of restorative practices as an evolving field of study and will have the opportunity to explore Restorative Approaches to Leadership and create an actionable leadership plan. The sessions will examine a varied perspective on leadership, self-reflection, engagement, and exploration of how our values, experiences, empathy, and bias inform our beliefs, intents, actions, and impacts. Current literature, theory and practical applications will be discussed. We will explore the emotional, relational, and ecological theories underpinning restorative principles, and the importance of engaging with others in equity-oriented, trauma-informed, and inclusive relationships. Participants will develop explicit restorative practices skills for application in their own personal and professional lives. This event introduces participants to a wide range of possible applications for restorative justice and other restorative practices in varied settings including criminal justice, education and youth services, higher education, social work, and workplaces. This professional development series will explore the potential, as well as limitations, risks, and obstacles to restorative practices through lecture, reading, and highly engaging activities and small group discussions.
