Equitable Acceleration Strategies to Move All Students Forward1:15 PM – 2:00 PM ET
As we enter the new school year, districts everywhere are striving to accelerate learning and maximize engagement while simultaneously addressing the equity gaps exacerbated by the pandemic, including access to devices, connectivity, and community supports for families. With an eye toward equity, superintendents from across the country will share strategies and resources that can be used to accelerate learning for students as well as support all educators in creating meaningful and effective learning experiences.
School Innovation for Today’s Generation: Achieving Excellence Wherever Learning Takes Place2:00 PM – 2:45 PM ET
From new educational technologies to transforming what it means to teach and learn digitally, the K-12 education landscape continues to evolve rapidly. This session will explore the big picture of where school innovation is headed and how it is going to meet the needs of today’s students wherever and however they are learning.
Contextualizing Social and Emotional Wellbeing from Rural to Urban and Communities In-Between2:45 PM – 3:30 PM ET
Thanks in part to federal relief aid, schools have a unique opportunity to invest even more in whole-child supports to accelerate learning. However, the impact of the pandemic has affected large and small districts disparately and in ways the federal formula may not have accounted for. In this session, leaders from different-sized districts will contextualize their approach to social and emotional wellbeing for their community and share their strategies for engaging students and families for the 2021-22 school year and beyond.
