SCO Taft Academy Conference

March 13, 2015 / SCO News

Nearly 200 staff members from our five campuses for youth with special needs attended the first SCO Taft Academy conference in March for a robust panel discussion and professional development activities. Through Taft, our staff are improving outcomes for children and youth with special needs by enhancing their skills and performance through Taft’s educational and professional development opportunities, and establishing a culture of performance excellence through consistent practice and interdisciplinary approaches.

Participants attended from the schools and residences at Robert J. McMahon Children’s Center/Tyree Learning Center, Ottilie RTF/Theresa Paplin School, Madonna Heights RTF & School, The Christopher School and Westbrook Preparatory School. The SCO Taft Academy is made possible by the generous support of the Taft Foundation.
