Their conversation focused on issues including: instructional scheduling; access to technology devices and reliable wi-fi; households with multiple students; opportunities for academic support (classroom, civic and community-based); parental support and involvement; caregiver considerations, and more.

The California Association of African-American Superintendents and Administrators (CAAASA) and the University of California Los Angeles Center for the Transformation of Schools (CTS) have collaborated to offer this free online series, which provides families and educators with the tools and strategies they need to ensure greater equity for students who continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 school closures.

With support from the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE), we’re inviting educators and equity leaders to make use of this video archive, and to discover new practices and approaches that will ensure their students continue to learn and thrive, even as their schools remain closed.
