This week's Keep Boone Healthy Podcast features Dr. Scott Elliott, Superintendant of Watauga County Schools. After schools closed March 14th due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our local school system quickly deployed assets, rearranged roles and responsibilities, and began distributing meals to children and delivering remote instruction in a very short time. 

What lessons were learned? What advantages helped Watauga County Schools deploy technology to students so quickly? How did students respond academically? When will plans be finalized for the Fall of 2020? 

These are all questions we posed to Dr. Elliott, as he shined a light on a very unique close to the semester for Watauga County Schools, but a close that also brought some of the very best in ingenuity and teamwork to the forefront.

We also discuss the continued local response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the recent conversations in our community regarding racial and social injustice, and we talk about how businesses can see through the economic pressures of today to replenish their reserves in the event there is more business disruption down the road.
