Des Moines Public Schools is hosting nearly 1,200 educators next week at its inaugural Summit on School Climate and Culture.

The meeting will be held Monday and Tuesday at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

The summit will cover several areas, including the latest research and best practices for improving student behavior, learning how a multi-cultural classroom can be an asset and how one's own culture and identity may affect others.

Other topics will include identifying the social and emotional needs of students, as well as better connecting with families to empower parents to set high expectations, monitor performance and support learning at home.
