The Spring 2020 IACTE Conference - Mental Health for All- has been cancelled. We will be carrying over a similar schedule for our Fall 2020 Conference. If you have made hotel reservations already, those should be automatically cancelled if you registered under the IACTE discount. Conference registrations will be refunded in the coming week.
William Penn University has closed campus to all outside groups due to the threat of Covid-19 (corona virus). The timeline is unknown at this time, therefore we have decided to cancel the Teacher Career Fair. Knowing each school district will need to get their hiring complete, virus or not, we just don’t see the necessity to hold the fair much later. We will be organizing to host the 2nd annual, first ever, WPU Teacher Career Fair in spring of 2021.
Thank you for sharing this with your students, we will reach out again when planning starts for 2021.

IOWA BILL WOULD CHANGE HOW TEACHERS DEAL WITH CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR
"School employees would receive guidelines on handling violent behavior and could physically remove a student from class for more reasons under a bill advanced by a Senate subcommittee Thursday.
Proposed by Sen. Amy Sinclair, R-Allerton, Senate Study Bill 3080 would provide more standards and guidelines, as well as protections, for teachers dealing with threatening and violent behavior in the classroom."
On Wednesday Feb. 5th 6pm in rm. 103 supreme court chambers the education committee is having a subcommittee meeting about this and is encouraging principals, supers, and teachers to come participate.
