Leading With Your Tech Team During Crisis
With the onset and subsequent aftermath of COVID-19, schools are relying on their tech teams more than ever. Tech department leaders and aspiring department leaders are being challenged to be thoughtful and strategic contributors to the school’s operations team. Learn from some of the top thought leaders involved with the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools about how they served as steady leaders for their schools during uncertain times and what resources they leaned on to keep their fingers on the pulse of the swiftly moving environment.
Rethinking Student Engagement: Ensuring Student Success During Challenging Times
Student engagement has historically been measured by grades, attendance, and participation in extra-curricular activities. As schools plan for distance or hybrid learning this fall, they necessarily must develop new ways to measure and evaluate student success. Join Rob Brisk and Brendan Laughlin from the Wellington Initiative as they explore five themes each school should consider as part of their start school planning.

Student Health in a COVID-19 World: Compliance and Risk Management Considerations
Independent schools are preparing for the day when students staff, and faculty return to campus. Schools are faced with collecting health forms remotely, developing protocols for tracking, and adhering to many additional compliance requirements related to the wellbeing of their community.
Join us as we bring together private school leaders to discuss their strategies for returning to school in light of these new compliance and risk management considerations. We invite you to submit your questions in advance (insert survey) for our panel to discuss. While the situation continues to evolve and much is still unknown, our aim is to provide a platform for thoughtful discussion and information exchange.
