In a lively conversation, Tanji Reed Marshall and Karin Chenoweth wrap up Season 1 of ExtraOrdinary Districts in Extraordinary Times by talking through what they have heard from school and district leaders from Alabama, California, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon and Washington D.C.

Over the course of 19 episodes, front-line educators have talked about managing the sudden shutdown of their buildings and how they are thinking about reopening in the fall. In reflecting on what they said, Chenoweth and Marshall bring together some common themes, including the difficulties of trying to plan in the face of uncertainty and the kinds of questions educators need to ask about how they can meet children’s academic needs moving forward.
