Hope, Engagement, and Well-being
among students in Fort Bend ISD
Speaker: Bob Conlon, Ph.D.
Director of Student Support Services, FBISD
August 28, 2013
The presentation will include a brief review of Whole Child Education programs in the District, but the main focus will be on the results of the Gallup Student Poll (GSP) administered to almost 14,000 students in Fort Bend ISD and nearly half a million students nationwide during October, 2012. The GSP measures Hope, Engagement, and Well-being, all of which are highly correlated with academic achievement and success in post-secondary education. All three factors can be changed for the better by adults. Discussion will include a brief review of Hope Theory, including strategies for improving goal-setting, pathways thinking, and agency thinking.
We are saddened to report the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Dr. Glen McClure, 76, after a valiant battle with cancer. Though saddened beyond words over his death, we treasure our memories and the relationship we had.
