The 2021-2022 school year is already presenting unique challenges for public education. Districts must provide equitable learning opportunities and maintain continuity of learning through incredible disruptions.
To help districts navigate this shifting landscape, the Office of Educational Technology (OET) at the United States Department of Education, with support from Digital Promise, is hosting a webinar series to identify and share promising practices for effectively addressing different teaching and learning contexts.
Strong, authentic school-community partnerships play an essential role in successful and resilient schools. Reciprocal community collaboration can lead to expanded opportunities for learners, increased engagement between districts and community agencies, and shared responsibility among diverse stakeholders for ensuring student outcomes. In this webinar, panelists will discuss how school districts have identified and worked with community partners to support learners and their families during the ongoing pandemic, particularly to address connectivity, digital equity, and the Digital Learning Gap.
