Learning in Quarantine: What Reporters Need to Know
School leaders are scrambling, yet again, during the third academic year since the pandemic began disrupting education in spring 2020. Under pressure to keep schools open and close learning gaps, they must still provide instruction to students quarantined at home due to COVID-19 exposure.
How is it going so far? What are the biggest challenges, and how are they being addressed? To get answers to these and other questions, watch the Education Writers Association’s webinar.
Experts and education leaders offer insights on emerging options for “temporary remote” instruction, lessons learned so far, how options are being communicated to families, and more. In addition, they discuss promising practices.
The webinar includes an education analyst tracking developments across the country, as well as two district leaders who are serving on a national commission led by AASA, the School Superintendents Association.
- Gustavo Balderas, superintendent, Edmonds School District (Washington state)
- Bree Dusseault, principal, Center on Reinventing Public Education
- M. Ann Levett, superintendent, Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (Georgia)
- Suevon Lee, education reporter, Honolulu Civil Beat (moderator)
