During this conference, we will collect ideas from parents, guardians, teachers, students and concerned New Yorkers about what precautions and programs should be in place next year, if and when schools reopen.
If schools are to reopen in the fall, it should be done the right way to ensure health and safety of students and staff and to maximize academic and emotional support. Though the Mayor and the Governor have their own advisory panels, few parents or educators have been appointed to these panels.
At the end of the conference, we will summarize the ideas of participants and present them to city and state decision-makers.
Please register here if you’d like to attend this conference, and we will send you the Zoom link beforehand. Space is limited so please do it now.
On the registration page, we are also asking you to select your first, second, and third choices of break-out groups, so we can assign you to the appropriate one. These groups' discussions will form the major portion of the conference. If you do not have a preference, you can leave that part of the registration blank.
Co-sponsored by CEC 4, CEC 8, CEC 14, CEC 17, and CEC 32.
