Planning for the Upcoming School Year: How Cities are Adapting Their Pre-K Programs in the Era of COVID-19

Webinar //


Jul 15 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST


CityHealth and the National Institute for Early Education Research are co-hosting this webinar on cities' efforts to plan and prepare for the upcoming school year. As we close out a school year that was fundamentally altered by the COVID-19 pandemic, Pre-K programs in cities across the country are planning for an uncertain fall.

During this webinar we'll discuss:

  • How are these programs adapting to the realities of social distancing and distance learning?
  • How are they preparing to safely meet the needs of families, teachers and most importantly the young children in their classrooms?
