Keynote Speaker John McHugh
Regardless of your role, what are people, customers and business partners looking for in you? What is the workplace culture you have created with your team that leads to success? Creating a mission driven culture with compassion and trust turns satisfied customers into loyal customers. In addition, if the work we do is tied into a purpose beyond profits our job satisfaction increases substantially and employee turnover is reduced.
 
Join John McHugh as he explores the role you play in your organization’s success and how you can find the key people to help you achieve that greatness. His examples and stories are ones that you won’t forget.

Program Approval and Self-Study Process
Iowa’s Quality CTE Program Review Tool and Self Study Process Iowa Code chapter 258 mandates the Iowa Department of Education to approve all secondary CTE programs. Accordingly, the department designed a program approval process following extensive review and evaluation of several national program approval models. The guiding principles behind the program approval process include continuous improvement, data-informed decision making, peer review and feedback, and partnership and capacity building. Use of the instrument provides programs, school districts, and Regional Planning Partners the opportunity to drive local program improvement. The indicators are rooted in the tenets which define a strong program. This session will review the self-study instrument as an integral component of the program approval process and share how it may be used to enhance the local needs assessment required in Perkins V. There will be time set aside for questions.

Raising Positive Learners, Not Just Test Scores
Educators on average are losing 5-9 hours a week on lower-level discipline challenges. Low-level disruptions are stealing precious instruction time. Academics and discipline go hand in hand. You can be the best content instructor, but without the ability to control the classroom the best lessons remain undelivered. Participants will learn how to avoid the "debate bait"—how to eliminate warnings and multiple requests. Participants will learn how to increase academics, decrease discipline challenges, gain parent support, and empower all educators. Participants will be encouraged and challenged to implement strategies and techniques that will change the classroom and campus climate immediately. Educators have reported a 70 percent and more success rate in reducing discipline using these techniques and strategies.

Student Engagement through National Policy Seminar & President Scholars
ACTE organizes the National Policy Seminar (NPS) in Washington, D.C. each year as a vehicle for CTE educators and students to learn more how policy is determined and to provide an opportunity for them to contact and impact legislators. Iowa ACTE believes that students are a vital and critical portion of Iowa’s delegation each year and has ­­­­­­­­committed $4000 (up to $1000 per student from four career and technical student organizations (CTSOs) to cover air fare and hotel accommodations for this purpose each year. The expectation is that these teachers would return to their individual school districts, and through their respective CTSOs, spread the importance of CTE to a student’s personal and professional future. Special guest attendees: CTE Presidential Scholar Program recipients, Jaxon Mullinnix and Megan Niewoehner. NPS attendees: Jake Hlas (FFA), Levi Hoffman (FBLA-PBL), Taylor Streff (HOSA), and Ellie Smith (TSA).
