The Second Wave: Preparing Schools and Students for the Ripple Effects of the COVID Crisis

The effects of COVID-19 will be felt throughout the education system and our students’ lives well after this pandemic has dissipated. When it does, those who work with students will be on the front lines of the recovery effort. Join our moderator, Spectrum News Anchor and City Year L.A. Board Member, Giselle Fernandez, for an engaging discussion with community and education leaders as we explore the current state of education and the new challenges schools will face as we help students reconnect with their school community, re-engage in their learning and recover from learning loss.
