After Two-Plus Years of Crisis, How Are District Leaders Resetting, and Rebuilding?
09:15 - 10:00
District leaders grappled with myriad crises during the pandemic. Entering a new school year, in-person instruction is once again the norm, but many challenges abound: staffing shortages, uncertainty about the future federal funding cliff, and questions about the long-term impact of unfinished learning during the COVID. In this session, we talk with a group of district leaders about how they plan to address the biggest challenges on the horizon – and what support they need from companies providing curriculum, assessment, professional development, social-emotional support, and other services. We ask how they and their district management teams are setting academic priorities for a post-pandemic learning environment, and what education companies have to do to prove their value and win the district’s trust.
