This is the third in a series of webinars around reopening campuses. The previous two have looked at this through the perspectives of (1) health and safety and (2) legal and policy consideration. The last will look at reopening campuses from a design thinking lens. NWAIS members can access recordings, slides and follow-up materials on the NWAIS Covid-19 Resource Page.


In this next webinar, we will explore this topic through the lens of psychological readiness and wellness with the all-star team at Re-Set School.

Now What??: Recovering from Spring 2020 and Preparing for What’s Next

When the pandemic forced schools to close, teachers moved quickly to learn new technology, revise lesson plans and adapt their teaching strategies. Students and parents moved to virtual platforms and did their best to turn home into school. And administrators acted quickly to help the community adjust. Everyone did their jobs, fully committed to making the best of this unprecedented disruption. 

Eight weeks later and still counting, many students, teachers, parents and administrators are fully depleted.

Yet, with barely a moment to take a breath, everyone is already thinking (and worrying!) about the 20-21 school year. You may have strategies, models and innovative tools to use for planning for the fall, but our research suggests that many people are not psychologically or even physically ready to use them.

In this e-seminar, Re-Set School offers a framework to help communities engage with their emotional experiences of emergency on-line schooling. Creating an opportunity for telling the stories of your struggles/achievements, and bearing witness to one another’s losses/gains, is a way of reaffirming the values that make you a community. Attending to (1) wellness and connection, (2) equity and inclusion, and (3) teaching and learning is what will help you build what's next, together.


RE-SET is a diverse team of experienced educators ready to help school leaders make their communities stronger, more cohesive, and more adaptive in the wake of the pandemic.

Creating a healthy, connected, and mission-centric learning community in such unsettled times is what your teachers, students and families deserve. RE-SET provides frameworks and a process that invites schools to ask, explore and answer vital questions about what's next. We help align mission, clarify values, ensure equity and affirm pedagogy.


All the while, we help you keep the individual and collective emotional health of the community at the center of your re-set.
