After a year in which district and school leaders shepherded wary communities through virtual learning, socially distanced classrooms and bus rides, mask-wearing mandates, and contact tracing and quarantines, the prospect of returning schools to some level of normalcy this fall feels promising. But uncertainty still lingers for the 2021-22 school year.
How hard will it be for some students to re-acclimate to full-time, in-person learning? What do teachers need to know to adapt instruction for the moment we’re in? How can schools be ready to address the widening social-emotional and mental-health needs of students and employees? And after saving education from complete collapse in the pandemic, how will schools evolve their use of educational technology and remote learning for new realities?
Join Education Week reporters for a discussion with school leaders, experts, and teachers on what to expect this school year and how to best prepare for it.

Education Week can provide 1 hour of Professional Development credit for online summits if the educator attends live. A Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you shortly after the summit has ended. On demand viewing of a summit cannot be used for credit. As with all professional development hours delivered, Education Week recommends each educator verify ahead of the online summit that the content will qualify for professional development in your school, district, county, or state with your supervisor, human resources professional, and/or principal or superintendent’s office.
