Webinar Series: Scenario Planning for Education – Jul 28-Aug 6

Posted by Project Evident on July 28, 2008

As states and districts navigate the wide-ranging repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Evident has organized a series of webinars designed to help SEAs and LEAs address critical short-term issues while planning for long-term recovery. Specifically, the series is intended to help SEAs and LEAs:

  • Target resources to where they are needed most;
  • Examine the risks, opportunities, and trade-offs of choices;
  • Determine what works, for whom, and under what conditions;
  • Iterate, learn, and improve.

During each webinar, participants will have the opportunity to engage with a peer who has experience in the space, as well as learn about the evidence they can use to inform their decisions and how to monitor their progress to support implementation and improve outcomes. Participants will also be able to engage with other districts and states that are currently carrying out this work.

Space is limited to 75 attendees per session.
