Online: Navigating 'Back to School' in 2020 Townhall Talk

  • August 12, 2020
  • 7:00 PM
  • Online, The Critical Thinking Child

In this VIRTUAL Townhall Webinar...

The COVID-19 pandemic is still in full force, and that means schools will continue to look different this fall. This is a stressful time for parents -- you want to make sure you’re setting your children up for success, but there are a lot of new options to navigate.

Join the discussion around how to best support your child through learning pods, hybrid schooling, or remote learning

We’ll take you through the different educational options available to your family, as well as some key questions and considerations. In addition to looking at hybrid and remote learning, we’ll take a close look at the advantages and disadvantages of learning pods, including:

  • What is a learning pod.
  • Why you might want to consider one (or not).
  • What equity issues surrounding learning pods, and why it’s an option for some parents, but not others.
  • Where to find safe and nurturing spaces for children to learn and grow, while staying safe and following public health guidelines.
  • How to structure your learning pod for academic success, find an educator, access tools and resources, and the potential costs are associated.

You want what’s best for your child. That means engaging in open discussion and honest conversation about the options available.

Free. Two times:
Saturday, August 8 @ 10 A.M. or
Wednesday, August 12th @ 7 P.M.
