As we end the second academic year impacted by COVID-19, we are still grappling with questions about how to best move forward, accelerate learning, and support students' social and emotional health. Thanks to unprecedented investment and an influx of resources, school systems across the country are using the summer months to assess learning, build community, deepen social and emotional supports, and target services to the most vulnerable youth.

This webinar is the second in a series of conversations about the continuing impact of the pandemic on learning. During this discussion, we’ll take the pulse of learning in real-time and explore some of the tough questions: What key programs are working? What can we learn from districts, program providers, and key stakeholders? What changes do we need to make? Join us for the discussion.
