As we forge ahead into the new school year, we know two things: there will be variations of blended learning to incorporate, and it is even more important not to lose sight of these areas that remain so valuable to magnets: equity and access- impact on magnet learning; COVID-19- Teacher Self-Care; magnet & social emotional learning (SEL)- support for students/parents/families; preserving and implementing themes; and marketing & recruitment COVID-19.
