    COVID-19:  Mass Disruptor to Education System and Student Learning
    Childcare programs, public schools, and post-secondary institutions have an important role in slowing the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and ensuring the health and safety of families and students.  To help mitigate the impact of COVID-19, policymakers who are on the front lines must determine how to best protect the well-being of learning communities overall, meet students' needs, minimize disruptions, and provide academic instruction all while responding to breaking developments in real time.  This webinar will provide policymakers with timely legislative developments as well as recommendations from federal and state agencies to leverage during this public health crisis.
