Across the country, K-12 schools and districts are, again, considering how to ensure effective continuity of learning in the face of emerging COVID variants, politicized debates, and more.

Learn from Alexandria City Public Schools superintendent of schools, Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr., and Arizona State University chief operating officer Amy McGrath, about how to reimagine a more equitable and resilient K–12 education system to withstand future disruption and improve flexibility for all learners and teachers. We will also discuss how virtual classrooms can be rigorous and engaging if supported by the right technology, people, and processes.

The discussion will include:

  • How administrators can consider the social, emotional, and mental well-being of their students and teachers.
  • How K-12 schools and districts can improve community and connection between teachers, parents, and students by utilizing technology.
  • Various approaches K-12 leaders have used and their insights when implementing plans to ensure learning continuity.
