Leading Schools in the COVID-19 Era: What have we learned so far? 

WHEN: wednesday, OCTOBER 7 at 1:00-2:00 pm (EST) 

This webinar is primarily for governments, education professional organizations, school and school district leaders, teachers and education support workers, and anyone interested in understanding current issues for changes to K-12 schooling for the education sector across Canada in the COVID-19 era.

This webinar explores what has been learned so far about leading schools through COVID-19 as we prepare to enter into our second month of school reopening across the country.

Topics to be explored include:

  • how our understandings of the work of school leaders is evolving;

  • the ways in which educators and their professional organizations are navigating ever-changing expectations of schooling during the present time; and

  • how schools can maintain a focus on the social justice and equity issues that have been laid bare as a result of COVID-19 and its impact on marginalized and racialized communities.
