Although there has been a variety of in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning occurring throughout the Southeast and the United States this school year, many schools are still shifting between learning models and/or starting to return to in-person learning. This Virtual Listening and Learning Session is designed to support school and district leaders, educators, student support personnel and other professionals to promote safe, supporting learning environments during these transitions. Following brief didactic information on best practices for school programming during COVID and other community-wide adversities, we will facilitate open discussion of strategies being put into place right now in the Southeast. Please come prepared to share your local innovations or goals on the horizon as well as challenges or concerns your teams are facing. An additional Learning Session will follow with tailored content to address challenges and concerns raised during the listening session portion of this event. Join us for connection and shared learning about how to strengthen Southeastern school communities during this complex and dynamic time!
