Keynote

This year’s keynote will be a panel discussion on better serving Becca youth with significant trauma histories, featuring experts from across Washington State. Leaders from our state will share relevant research, how they have responded to this challenge, and ways they have enhanced truancy reduction efforts in their communities. The keynote panel also will provide information about the changing demographics of youth being served in our Becca system and include testimony from a young person who has experienced the Becca system first-hand.

Plenary Session

Friday’s plenary session will be a panel discussion on the use of secure detention in Becca cases. Leaders from our state will share current research and steps they have taken to reduce reliance on secure detention in Becca cases. The plenary panel also will include testimony from a young person who has experienced secure detention first-hand.

Also, as a special offering this year, we will host a pre-conference session from 8:00 am – 9:45 am on Thursday October 5th on the Washington Assessment of Risk and Needs of Students (WARNS). A separate registration fee is required for this event.
