Dear High Schools,


Registration for the 2018 High School Forum is now open. The forum will take place on November 13-14, 2018, in Great Fall at the Holiday Inn. This event is open to middle and high schools staff across the state who are working on or using a Multi-Tiered approach to academic and behavioral concerns.


November 13 will feature Dr. Robbin Ennis presenting “Integrated Three-Tiered Models of Prevention.” If you are not familiar with Dr. Ennis, she is Assistant Professor in the special education program of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Her research interests include comprehensive integrated three-tiered models of prevention and low-intensity/instructional academic and behavioral strategies to support students with and at-risk for emotional and behavioral disorders. On these topics she has published over 50 peer-review articles and conducted over 150 conference presentations. Dr. Ennis serves on the executive committee of the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders. She is an associate editor for Remedial and Special Education and on the editorial boards of Behavioral Disorders, Beyond Behavior, Intervention in School and Clinic, and Journal of Positive Behavioral Interventions.
