Keynote Speaker: David Domenici

David Domenici

Co-founder, Maya Angelou Public Charter Schools
Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
Director, Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings

David co-founded and served as the founding principal of the Maya Angelou Academy-the school located inside the District of Columbia’s long-term, secure juvenile facility-from 2007 to 2011.

He designed the key elements of the school model, including short, thematic units aligned with state standards, incentive programming based on the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports framework, a technology-enhanced instruction and learning platform, and a set of technology tools designed to enhance communication between school and correctional staff.

The Maya Angelou Academy’s success has been widely recognized. Retention rates (the percentage of students remaining in school or holding jobs after release to the community) have doubled since the Maya Angelou Academy began serving D.C.’s incarcerated youth.
