Movie Viewing: Resilience

Resilience is a documentary film that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and a movement to treat and prevent toxic stress.

This film chronicles the work among pediatricians, therapists, educators, and communities who are using brain science to disrupt the cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

Two options to view:

  • July 7 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • July 20 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Both will be held in Sequoia 1, Lower Level Room D.


Out-of-School Time Conference - Call for Presenters!

OST Sponsors Banner

The Arlington Out of School Time (OST) Council invites you to share your knowledge, skills, and ideas with OST Staff by offering a workshop at the 2017 OST Asset Conference. Our goal is to offer a wide variety of workshops for an OST audience with varied levels of experience and education.

The conference theme is Exceeding Expectations: Customer Service in OST and focuses on both the ‘product’ (program content) and ‘service’ (how serve young people) of OST programs.

Workshop sessions are facilitator-led and are designed to share

  • successful strategies, practices, and ideas that participants can apply the following Monday in their program, or
  • thoughtful sessions to build the skills and knowledge base of OST professionals, as supervisors, peer mentors, or youth leaders. Click here to learn about and propose a WORKSHOP.

 CONFERENCE DATE: Saturday, November 4, 2017

If you would like to discuss ideas for a workshop or panel, or want more information about Developmental Assets®, please contact Michael Swisher at mswish@arlingtonva.us or 703-228-1671.

Join an Advisory Committee

The School Board actively seeks the advice of community members through a wide range of advisory committees and councils. These advisory committees and councils are appointed by the School Board, advise the School Board and, when appropriate, make recommendations on issues or policies related to the successful operation of the school system. For more information on how to apply for an appointment, visit the APS Website. School Board Advisory Councils and Committees are not meeting in July.
