Pressing K-12 Needs – and Questions About Reopening – Heading Into a New School Year

Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 2:00 pm

School districts across the country are attempting to settle in to a full year of face-to-face instruction as students head back to school this fall. They’ll face major questions about how they’ll address student academic slippage from the pandemic, how they’ll spend stimulus funding – and uncertainty about how the delta variant will affect them. In this quarterly briefing, EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will break down the results of our reporting and survey research on how districts are preparing for the year ahead, and what support they will expect from companies.
Attendees will gain these insights:
  • New data from surveys of K-12 officials on the academic and non-academic areas where students will need the most support heading into the new year;
  • Original research on the what kinds of company-backed strategies to address learning loss districts are most confident in and skeptical of;
  • A breakdown of EdWeek Market Brief’s reporting on how districts are weighing risks from the delta variant and how it could affect their work; and
  • Reporting on whether education companies are requiring vaccinations of their employees and sending them back into school districts.
Speakers include:
  • Emma Kate Fittes, staff writer, EdWeek Market Brief
  • Brian Bradley, staff writer, EdWeek Market Brief
  • Sean Cavanagh, managing editor, EdWeek Market Brief
  • David Saleh Rauf, contributing writer, EdWeek Market Brief
