Since mid-March 2020, our daily routines have been ruled by a public health crisis unlike anything most of us have seen. We feel frustrated, annoyed, overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. The normality in education has been shattered, and while COVID-19 has been the catalyst for the process, the changes both inside and outside of education have been constant over the last 20 years. The realities of COVID-19, economic uncertainty and emphasis on systemic racism and inequities have brought school districts across the United States to a crossroads. Systems must learn to adapt with a future-focused vision and an ability to apply innovative principles and processes to their work. We are not powerless in this challenge; we must be the ones to act. 

In this edWeb podcast, Ray McNulty shares strategies and practices helpful to the challenges that leaders, educators and students are facing. Schools and districts have never been more challenged in supporting the needs of students while navigating a world that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA). One school district leading the way is Middletown Public Schools in Connecticut, led by Dr. Michael Conner whose focus on building trust has enabled movement throughout the system. His emphasis has been centered on several important strategies, polarity management, professional learning, systemic agility and many others. Action by leaders matters more now than ever before, and just because the future is uncertain, it doesn’t mean you can’t influence it. 

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
