Safely Re-Opening America's Schools

Thursday, May 28, 2020 | 11:00am EDT

The question of how schools can be reopened in ways that protect the health and safety of students, teachers and other adult staff is not only a challenging one, but one which is dynamic and changing, as we grapple with new developments such as regional outbreaks and rising incidences of COVID-19 related pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome. This webinar examined those challenges, discussed the current state of our knowledge on best practices and sound policies, and provided guidance to educators and policymakers on how to move forward under harrowing circumstances.

Speakers:

Keron Blair, Executive Director of the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools (AROS)

Linda Darling Hammond, President of the California Board of Education and founding president of the Learning Policy Institute

Jacqueline M Moline, MD, MSc, Professor and Chair, Occupational Medicine, Epidemiology and Prevention, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell Occupational and Environmental Medicine of Long Island

Randi Weingarten, President, American Federation of Teachers and Albert Shanker Institute
