ASCD Virtual Conference: Back to School

Organization: ASCD
Date: August 13–14, 2020
Location: Virtual
Description: Attendees of the ASCD Virtual Conference: Back to School will obtain practical strategies to support educators to set your team up for success. Organized around the following tracks, the conference will help you and your schools plan for the 2020–21 school year. Track 1: Strategy & Operations. Logistics. Technology. Communication. Schedules. Schools are likely to look—and run—very differently when the new year starts and will need to be ready to respond quickly as the situation changes. What do leaders need to think about and prepare when planning for the new year? Track 2: Educator Readiness. Educators have had to adapt everything they do and everything that's familiar to meet students' needs, all while dealing with the pandemic themselves. How can we prepare educators for the new school year and build their capacity, both emotional and pedagogical, to work in a flexible and changing teaching environment? Track 3: Addressing Academic Gaps. Estimates have shown that some students could fall up to a year behind in their education because of the disruptions brought on by the pandemic. How do we address the disruption in learning and assessments from the 2019–2020 school year while ensuring no student falls further behind? Track 4: Equity. With a variety of scenarios for restarting school in the fall, one thing is certain: some students and families will face challenges in access and supports. How do we identify and plan to minimize—and strive to erase—the systemic inequities many in our school communities will encounter? Track 5: Social-Emotional Learning & Student Support. We must recognize that some students, families, and communities will have experienced trauma and adversity during the pandemic. How can schools prepare to support these students for the upcoming year? Learn more.
