The world has shifted, and schools are implementing new systems to support the real possibility of the need for online learning – before, during, and after potential school disruptions. As the nation shifts to distance learning during these unprecedented times, students from special populations could fall behind and not have access to the learning.

Watch this edWebinar to learn about providing your district staff and school leaders with key information, tools and resources, research, and structures to successfully implement a school or district-wide distance learning system for special populations students.

This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to school and district leaders, and directors of ELL and SPED of kindergarten through high school grade levels.
