National Title 1 Conference 2012 Seattle, Washington
The National Title 1 Conference 2012 was recently held in Seattle WA. As we have mentioned here on the Catapult Learning website, a number of our employees were in attendance, and they were extremely excited to be a part of this years conference!
Matt Young from Catapult Learning shared his first hand perspective from the conference (along with some great snapshots):
The National Title 1 Conference was a wonderful event and a great way to kick off 2012. This year’s conference “Soaring to Excellence” featured among others, Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education Michael Yudin and the ESEA Flexibility Team from the US Department of Education. The sessions were very well attended, many over capacity, and overall feedback from conference attendees was positive.
For Catapult Learning, the weekend was highlighted by our dinner on Sunday night at Sullivan’s restaurant. Our guests enjoyed a well deserved night of dinner and great conversation (and not too far from the main hotel which everyone appreciated!). A good time was had by all…..especially the folks from the New York area who were able to see the Giants make it to the Super Bowl on the big screen TV in the dining room!
This year was a tremendous success and we look forward to seeing everyone in Nashville, TN in 2013!
Matt Young is the Director of School Partnerships for Public Schools in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. He is also the School Partnership Director for both Public and Non-Public schools in Michigan.

About: Catapult Learning
Achieving Beyond Expectations: Serving K-12 children who struggle with academics.
We believe the key to unlocking a child’s potential lies within a motivating learning environment that is sensitive to his or her unique instructional needs. That’s why we partner with schools and school districts to better understand the challenges children face, and offer customized solutions that range from small-group K-12 instructional intervention services, to extended-day and summer learning programs, to turnkey professional development and more.
For 35 years, Catapult Learning and our predecessor companies have partnered with education institutions, government agencies, and community groups, providing outcomes-based learning programs that are tailored to individual student needs and produce positive academic results. Catapult Learning, a privately owned company, is a leading provider of contracted educational services to schools and districts nationwide and last year we provided more than 106,000 services to students in approximately 1,400 schools. We are currently the largest, most experienced provider of contracted educational services to non-public schools in the country. Our instruction, our services, and our people motivate the students we serve to achieve great success in school and beyond.
Our programs employ over 3,200 full- and part-time staff, and have served more than one million students. Our streamlined administrative structure is designed to ensure that we meet planned, agreed upon goals in a highly cost-efficient manner. Our managerial expertise enables us to seamlessly integrate our programs into schools, thus alleviating—and even eliminating—complex administrative responsibilities from the districts and schools we serve.
In addition to our signature K-12 instructional intervention services and programs focusing on reading and math, we provide a wide variety of additional services such as English as a second language (ESL) programs, speech/language assessment and intervention services, writing, study skills and test taking strategies, diagnostic therapy and counseling services, IDEA services, early childhood education, parent involvement programs, school nursing and social work, program evaluation, and a variety of consultative services. We also provide Professional Development services using a diverse array of offerings. We deliver these services under contract to school districts, county‑wide educational agencies, and municipalities. We have earned a reputation for providing effective and cost-efficient educational services to schools.
