In parts of Western Europe and Asia where the pandemic was weeks and months ahead of the U.S., the threat from the virus has gradually diminished. Schools in many regions of the world have reopened to welcome students and teachers into classrooms. These efforts can serve as a model for U.S. schools as leaders figure out the best way to ensure the safety of their students, teachers, and parents. This webinar will bring together school administrators from Germany, Switzerland, and Russia to share what challenges they have been facing and lessons learned from their global experiences re-opening.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover new strategies for opening schools.
  2. Learn about the social emotional impact on students.
  3. Find out how to apply practical design patterns to accommodate social distancing.
  4. Determine the best use of limited funding when budgets must accommodate increased cleaning and safety protocols.
