On April 26, school leaders from Lyman High School in Longwood, Florida; Garinger High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Lincoln Middle School in Passaic, New Jersey will talk about how they have reduced tardiness and turned school climate around at their schools using Hero K12 and other support measures. Tardy students have lower grades, poor standardized test performance, and are less likely to complete high school. Additionally, students who are chronically tardy are at risk of being suspended or other disciplinary action. The leaders on these webinars will talk about how they stopped the escalation of frequent tardiness by implementing positive behavior support and intervention strategies.

During the May 4, Rome Middle School (Rome, Georgia) will be the focus as leaders share high yield, practical steps to help reframe how schools manage student behavior and the impact it has on overall school climate. The school principal will talk about lessons learned in driving positive school-wide change and how other schools can make the process more efficient and manageable.
