Leading Our Schools Through Crisis and Preparing for a New Normal

The TASA Summer Conference was virtual! School leaders participated in a dynamic online learning experience centered around the issues they are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including planning for the new school year. They gained valuable information from state officials, subject-matter experts, and fellow school leaders in a completely online conference. Did you miss the conference? Don’t worry! 70+ sessions were recorded and are available to registrants for viewing through Sunday, July 12. Register any time before July 10 to access the videos. The sooner, the better, because that’s a lot of videos!

I was hesitant to sign up for a virtual conference, but I was blown away by it. I would definitely do it again.

I really need this at this time! Seeing my TASA friends and other leaders helped to inspire me to keep working at this unique time from a place of hope.

I really appreciate the fact that the recordings are available. There was one day we had interviews all day and I didn’t get to view any sessions. I may be the lone wolf, but I like virtual events!

About the Platform

The TASA Virtual SummerCon used Hopin as its virtual platform so we could live participants the amazing speakers, networking, expo booths, breakout discussions, and the fortuitous random “run-ins” that happen at physical events.
