FOCUS is the summer conference hosted by Prairie Lakes AEA on the beautiful, lakeside campus of Buena Vista University. This learning experience blends a variety of inspiring and informative keynote speakers and breakout sessions. It’s an opportunity to catch your breath and reflect, but also a time to engage in learning, plan, and focus forward. Our first conference was held in fall 2018 and focused on creating a trauma-sensitive school. While the conference remains grounded to that beginning, FOCUS brings educators, counselors, administrators, and other education professionals together to engage in learning around the most current and pressing challenges that face us in today’s classrooms.
FOCUS 2023 ~ June 21 & 22
Buena Vista University, Storm Lake
