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!
