15th Annual Washington State Becca Conference Agenda

View some of the Becca Conference presentations and materials here:

  • WHO IS AT RISK AND WHAT DO THEY NEED?
    • Learn about best practice strategies for administering the Washington Assessment of the Risks and Needs of Students (WARNS), implementation challenges and successes based on experiences of school districts using the WARNS, targeting interventions based on the assessment results, an adaptation of the WARNS for middle school students, and alternative tools for assessing risks and needs of students as compared to the WARNS.
    • Learn about Sunnyside High School’s strategies for data collection and operationalization, including identification and monitoring of attendance “hot spots” and designing an attendance system that meets the needs of diverse populations of students.
  • HOW ARE RISKS AND NEEDS CONNECTED TO TRUANT AND AT-RISK BEHAVIORS?
    • Learn about the impact of physical health conditions and school environment on school attendance, and case management by nurses for chronically absent students.
    • Learn about the Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe) program model for students experiencing significant mental health challenges and partnerships between school system partners and WISe service providers to bridge the gap in services between schools and communities.
    • Learn about the correlation between school culture and chronic absenteeism and strategies for embracing diverse populations.
    • Learn about the unique needs of migrant students, including how their status affects school attendance, and strategies for working with, engaging, and serving these students and their families.
  • HOW DO WE RESPOND?
    • Learn how Rod’s House is supporting some of the State’s most vulnerable and at-risk youth – those experiencing homelessness and housing instability.
    • Learn how the collaboration between Clark County Juvenile Justice, Cowlitz County Juvenile Justice, the Courts, Clark and Cowlitz County School Districts, and ESD 112, collectively known as the “Clark and Cowlitz County Truancy Projects,” is effectively responding to Washington State’s Truancy Laws.
    • Learn how ESD 105 is supporting implementation of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in schools for students with emotional-behavioral challenges across the region
