Equity for Students in a Virtual Learning Environment: It’s not Easy but Essential
As educators strive to transition from traditional to virtual learning, providing equity for students can be difficult. Leaders and teachers are held to high accountability standards when planning and providing services. Since the onset of the pandemic and virtual learning, compliance is a greater challenge as leaders and teachers consider plans of continued support for all student populations. As multi-year participants of the National Title I conference, Dr. Ferebee and Dr. Flowers took steps to ensure there was no lapse in instruction. Participants will engage in conversations about the decision making process used to identify best practices and data analysis and research. Using a roundtable discussion, we will focus on the following questions: Who is accountable for what? How do educators continue to provide supports and services? Which students require blended learning versus a fully virtual environment? Processes for collecting data to make adjustments?
