District and school leaders are confronting difficult, high-stakes decisions as they plan for how and if they will reopen school buildings this fall as the global pandemic rages on. Many of the options and requirements for reopening schools will upend some of the most effective aspects of teaching and learning. Following public health protocols will cost a lot of money, even as school budgets are pummeled by the economic collapse. Managing the anxieties of teachers, students, and parents will require patience, compassion, and careful communication.To help district and school leaders navigate these monumental decisions, the journalists at Education Week and expert guests will discuss some of the biggest challenges ahead and offer ideas and solutions that can be adapted for individual districts and schools.
This free online summit will take place on August 19, 2020, from 1-3 p.m. EDT. Registration is required.
Host Organization: Education Week
