On June 7, more than 250 educators from across our region joined in celebrating student outcomes, learning what works, and how to do more of it. This occurred at our first-ever RSE-TASC Student Outcomes Conference a/k/a SOcon. Seventeen school, agency, and program teams celebrated the student outcomes that they’ve achieved, and shared how they did it. Student outcomes refer to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students need in order to be independent and successful in school, career, and community. Student outcomes are why we exist as educators. Thus, SOcon was not a conference. SOcon was a switch – “from archaeological problem solving to bright-spot evangelizing” (Heath & Heath, 2010, p. 48).
