We know how hard it is to fit professional development into your busy days, especially with the additional work that schools and districts are required to do during the ongoing pandemic. That’s why the Connected & Engaged team partnered with national experts to create an on-demand webinar series on topics important in instructional leadership today. The series is free, each session lasts one hour, and all webinars are available for viewing at your convenience.
Description: The first year of high school in the United States is a critical predictor of a student’s future likelihood of completing high school. Undeniably, COVID-19 has raised new barriers for students, with heightened impacts emerging for students of color and students with disabilities. With much of the nation’s schools reopening for in-person or hybrid learning, the need for supports for incoming 9th graders will be vast. Join experts from FHI 360 and AIR to learn about 9th grade success during a pandemic and learn strategies and get resources to support your work.
Description: Schools and districts are focused on accelerating student learning during this period of COVID-19 recovery, but what does it mean for educators and what can schools and districts do to facilitate their success? Join experts from FHI 360’s Connected & Engaged team and Learning Forward to learn how educators can be supported as they create engaging classrooms during this COVID-19 recovery phase.
Description: Postsecondary education and career training are the best pathway for long-term success and a lifetime of opportunity. With the onset of COVID-19, educators were forced to prioritize the more immediate needs of their students, staff, and the community. This webinar focuses on the impact of that shift on college and career readiness, especially for Black and Latinx students and students of low income, and what it looks like during this extraordinary period of recovery. Leaders in the field discuss the trends seen nationally at the state level and how they should help inform their action plans. Presenters include staff from FHI 360, the American College Application Campaign® (ACAC), the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN), and the National College Attainment Network (NCAN).
Description: How can school leaders ensure Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is woven into the fabric of the school community? How can we build upon the relationship building begun in September? Join the discussion with CASEL’s Practice Integration Specialists and learn how to leverage and continue SEL work and integrate it into all aspects of school life.
