On November 3, 2017, thirteen schools with a total of 225 educators gathered again at St. Nicholas of Tolentine for Day 2 of the Meeting the Needs of All Learners Conference. Teachers in grades K-8 and specials teachers had access to eight break-out sessions, all on the topic of Academic Interventions. Teachers learned how to do a root cause analysis, how to administer the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmarking System, how to use the Wilson Phonics System, how to progress monitor, and more. The preschool teachers had three break-out sessions designed specifically for them, delivered by preschool teachers. Specials teachers and school administrators also each met in roundtables to discuss the implications of academic interventions on them.

Day 3 of this conference will be held on February 9, 2018 again at St.  Nicholas of Tolentine. The topic of Day 3 is Behavior Interventions.
