Attention: Education Agencies, Education Providers and Parents/Guardians
The U.S. Department of Education is hosting a webinar series to support educational settings in safely sustaining or returning to in-person instruction. The series features lessons learned and best practices from teachers, faculty, staff, schools, districts, institutions of higher education, early childhood education providers, and other places of educational instruction describing approaches to operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On behalf of the U.S. Department of Education (ED), including the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Safe and Supportive Schools and the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services’ Office of Special Education Programs, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments (NCSSLE) invites you to join the next webinar, Returning to In-Person Learning: Supporting Students, Especially Those with Disabilities, through Intensive Instruction, Effective Learning Environments and Family Engagement.

Please join us for this informative webinar featuring information from the U.S. Department of Education and a panel discussion with practitioners who will share lessons learned and strategies utilized to support all students, especially those with disabilities, returning to in person learning. Together they will focus on how district and school staff can intensify instruction, create effective learning environments, and engage families in ways that benefit all students, especially students with disabilities, when returning to in-person learning.
