We are all anxious and excited to re-open schools, but we know we can’t and shouldn’t just go back to the “pre-pandemic” world of education. We have learned too much from pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps this past year and are eager to apply that to build better, more engaged, and equitable learning communities. The time is now!

Watch this edLeader Panel where we talk about using what we have learned to go “Back to the Future” in time for the 2021-22 school year. The panelists address topics from ensuring equity and inclusion to maximizing newly available funds, and will highlight three key areas to help you successfully “future-proof” your entire learning community.

This recorded edLeader Panel will be of interest to preK-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
