4 ways our district finds educational opportunities during the pandemic
The pandemic has developed plenty of apparently overwhelming obstacles, but it has also presented incredible chances for school districts. Perhaps its an attitude of goodwill and shared aid that enhances relationships amongst district stakeholders. Possibly its a big injection of financing from the CARES Act that will let you make long-needed purchases or financial investments in your district that formerly felt out of reach.
Whatever the case, the post-COVID world is going to be different. The bright side is that the world to come, particularly in your own school district, has not been figured out yet, and we have the chance to put our stamp on it before it ever arrives.

They have tracked down many tools, trainings, and other resources to ensure theyre doing the finest they can for our students in these difficult times. One of my preferred examples is a set of resources they developed themselves.
