July 8, 2021 –
Please join the U.S. Department of Education and partner for the next Summer Learning & Enrichment Collaborative Virtual Session – Thursday July 8 3:00-5:00pm ET!
The July 8 virtual session of the Summer Learning and Enrichment Collaborative will examine the impacts of the pandemic on students, including how COVID-19 has deepened pre-pandemic disparities in access and opportunities facing students of color, multilingual learners, students with disabilities, native students, and LGBTQ+ students. We will share findings from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights report on the disparate impacts of COVID-19 on students and hear responses from Department leaders including strategies for how summer programs can use federal funds to address significant impacts on student learning and social emotional wellbeing.
Following the opening plenary, participants can choose to participate in Tabletop Discussions on one of these topics:
- Engaging families in summer learning with support from special education parent centers
- Designing culturally responsive summer programs for Native American students
- Coordinating multiple community agencies to serve the most vulnerable families
- Developing parent leadership in high-needs communities
- Serving students with moderate or severe disabilities in summer programs
- Supporting LGTBQ+ students in summer and out-of-school programs
