Show Notes

The webinar recording can be accessed here.

There is no question that the year 2020 presented a whole new reality to the practices and processes for leading learning in today’s school systems. Old problems and challenges were magnified, as new crises arose almost daily. One positive thing life in COVID-19 did provide was an opportunity to examine the current status of K-12 education and innovate new ways to meet the needs of all students. 

In this edWeb podcast, education leaders, Dr. Carol Kelley, Superintendent, Oak Park Elementary District 97, IL, Dr. Chris Marczak, Chief of Instructional Leadership for the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity, Pacific Center for Instructional Leadership, Japan, Dr. David Schuler, Superintendent, Township High School District 214, IL, and Dr. Donna Wright, Director of Schools, Wilson County Schools, TN, reflect on the lessons learned for dealing with a sudden crisis as they recall the steps they took in March and April of 2020 when the world was beginning to deal with the reality of a global pandemic. They also share strategies, policies, and practices they are implementing in their school systems to assure that effective learning for all students continues today and in the future. Frankie Jackson shares the latest updates from CoSN’s 2021 Driving K-12 Innovation Report. Listen to the conversation as together we look back and look forward. 

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