This past year continued to be challenging for schools and educators in the midst of a pandemic. The National 所有iance responded to the needs of educators by creating year-round content to help answer pressing questions, 吸引观众的, 讨论热点话题. We also held our annual National Charter Schools Conference virtually with a focus on mental health, 创新, 和参与.
一天只有那么几个小时, 在这个过程中，你可能错过了很多很棒的内容. Thankfully, we’ve posted a number of these resources online so you can catch up on-demand now.
In this post, we’ve gathered some of the favorite sessions and best webinars of 2021:
1. Keynote Session: Supported, Seen, and Safe: What Students and Teachers Need in the Wake of COVID-19
如果过去一年的双重创伤能告诉我们什么, 学生的幸福和学术学习一样重要. 建立在这种弹性之上，并确保学生感到被关注, 已知的, 支持, 安全是未来一年成功的关键.
In this keynote session at the 2021 National Charter Schools Conference, Dr. 普里西拉-陈, 陈-扎克伯格倡议的联合创始人兼联合ceo, 加入凡妮莎·罗德里格斯, 世界公民爱博导航的临时CEO, to discuss how schools can apply findings from the science of relationships to meet the needs of both educators and students alike, 更好地支持学生的幸福和加快学习.
在2021年全国爱博导航会议上取得成功后, 我们带回了伊恩·罗, 顶点合伙学院创始人，美国企业研究所常驻研究员, 还有沙里夫·埃尔·梅基, 黑人教育发展中心的创始人兼首席执行官, 以进一步探讨批判种族理论在学校的教学问题.
在这个90分钟的网络研讨会中, the National 所有iance provided an update on state-level legislative activity, 然后与伊恩和谢里夫进行了深思熟虑的讨论. The two educators and advocates on different sides of the debate discussed ways to support teachers and leaders who are grappling with this controversial and nuanced issue every day.
Have you struggled to prioritize teacher retention during this period of crisis? Are you wondering how to take meaningful action on teacher retention with limited staff capacity? 在这次会议中, we explored concrete strategies and resources to support your teacher retention efforts, 总是如此，但在危机时刻尤其如此
4. Webinar: Voting with their Feet: A State-level Analysis of Public School Enrollment Trends
We had a lot of questions after we published our report with compiled data on enrollment for district and charter schools for the 2020-21 school year. 我们的发现让每个人都很惊讶! Enrollment at charter schools increased significantly over the last year compared to district enrollment for most 州.
This recorded webinar provides a deep dive into the data and trends and what this means for the future of public education from the advocacy, 研究, 学校层面, 和家长的角度来看. 摘要? Families are voting with their feet as they seek out more options and better quality in public education for their children.
工作就在孩子们所在的大楼里. 当老师们回到教室时，什么也跟着回来了? 他们也受到了创伤. School may feel like a powder keg of emotional triggers as we all engage in "recovery." Schools paid deliberate attention to mental health services for our students, yet teachers are the single most crucial component of returning to normal (new normal). 请不要把它们漏掉. 我们会告诉你怎么做.
6. Webinar: Black Excellence: Partnerships Between Public Charter Schools and the National Pan-Hellenic Council
自他们各自成立以来, the fraternities and sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (affectionately 已知的 as the Divine 9) have had Black educational achievement and success as the foundation of their very existence. 在这种精神, many members of these organizations have started and currently run high-quality public charter schools that are closing the achievement gap within their respective communities.
Hear how the historically Black fraternities and sororities can better support charter schools by creating their own schools and advocating for them alongside parents and students with school leaders leading the way.
The federal government allocated nearly $123 billion for PreK-12 education resources through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief fund, 美国救援计划法案的一部分. 经济刺激方案允许美元有广泛的用途, from addressing learning loss to providing services to support student mental health to purchasing PPE and software.
But what does this once-in-a-generation influx of cash mean operationally for your school? 在本次记录的网络研讨会中, 由国家联盟领导, 并得到成功学院爱博导航和亚马逊商业的支持, 我们为您最迫切的问题提供观点, from understanding the nuances of the bill to spending and tracking your funds to outlining best practices.
在2021年州立法会议期间, charter school supporters achieved several notable wins by advancing positive charter school bills and stopping or mitigating anti-charter school legislation. 同时, we continued to see damaging charter school bills gain a foothold in a handful of 州. 这些输赢对2022年的影响是什么?
