Across the country, students, their families, and teachers have shown up or logged into a new school year. The standardized practices and structures of their new classrooms are still-recognizable versions of pre-pandemic schooling that have been flattened, twisted, and forced to fit into new, socially-distanced, and on-screen classes. Even under “normal” circumstances, many of these familiar school practices have been historically inadequate for ensuring the success of all students.
Especially now, the particular challenges involve engaging students in developmentally appropriate practices: building interpersonal relationships, and providing mental and behavioral health supports are more acute. And, it’s not just students needing care and support. Teachers increasingly work in greater isolation from their students and their colleagues.
What do our students and teachers need to thrive at school, at work, and at home? How can school and district leaders support and care for their school communities? Join us for a conversation exploring these questions and more.
