Preparing K12 Staff for the Reopening of School Districts

July 22, 2020

COVID-19 resulted in all schools going virtual in March 2020 and created unprecedented times for educators. Many educators did extraordinary things to stay connected with their students. Educators, parents and students all experienced high levels of stress, fear and anxiety. Resuming school and attending to the safety and social and emotional needs of students will be a challenge. Many educators and students will have anxiety about returning to school and self-care strategies for everyone are very important. This session by Dr. Scott Poland, a former national school crisis team leader, will focus on helping staff and administrators with their anxiety about school resuming. The presentation provides action steps for administrators as they plan for the reopening of school.
