There are a lot of unknowns as we head into the new school year. What will instruction look like for K-12 Public Schools? How are districts addressing equity issues and kids who may be slipping through the cracks as school buildings remain closed in many areas? There are also issues like providing school lunches for students during remote learning and childcare concerns for working families during the extended closures.
How will schools pay for COVID-19 safety requirements and changes when they do reopen? There are also questions about testing and a whole lot more. WFDD's Keri Brown will moderate a discussion with local experts about some of the challenges and what’s being done to help address these issues during the crisis.
