We continue last week’s conversation in the context of high school.

Based on the recent school board decision to start the school year 100% virtual, we share school, parent, and expert thoughts on pivoting to a remote learning plan when folks have been preparing to return to school in person with a focus on school operations and academics (e.g., distance learning, providing lunch during remote learning now that waivers have ended, what that means for families, and how parents will be impacted.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE: CARING FOR COMMUNITY DURING COVID is a collaboration between Algiers Charter Schools Association, Black Education For New Orleans, and The Education Trust. It was an eight-week radio series intended to provide timely information and space for dialogue between educators and parents through the beginning of what was sure to be an unpredictable and challenging school year. Our goal with this show was to hold space for educators and parents to be in conversation with each other about critical issues related to getting back to school and build empathy and understanding as we move forward together.
