DENVER (PRWEB) July 15, 2020
Future of School is hosting a national webinar, Business Not as Usual, highlighting the national challenges faced by school districts across the country to reopen schools. The panel of business, foundation and education leaders will discuss innovative ways to solve educational challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the evolving needs of parents and students. Access and equity to education requires creative solutions supported by organizations, corporations and local communities. Future of School has developed the Resilient School Project to support districts and schools as transition to blended and online learning.
According to Amy Valentine, CEO, Future of School, “The only variable in American society that has not been profoundly transformed by technology is the K-12 education system.” Valentine continued, “The transition to crisis schooling in March 2020 highlighted that learning can happen anywhere, anytime. We are now at a pivotal moment where we have the opportunity to bring the future of school to today.”
