Recovery Sessions with State and National Experts

June 15, 2021 from 12-12:45 p.m.

CEI is hosting a Sustaining Innovation Design Sprint throughout June to support Colorado school districts in their work to plan for “recovery” over the next three years. As part of this Sprint, we are leveraging the 5 Power Strategies from ERS as a framework for reflection and planning. Next week, we are thrilled to be hosting a set of 30-minute learning sessions with state and national partners that offer a deep dive into each strategy area – including Empowering Instruction, Time & Attention, The Teaching Job, Relationships & SEL, Family & Community Partnership, and Funding & Policy.

We have a strong slate of leaders and organizations who are outlined below joining to lead these conversations, and would love to invite your engagement. Please join us for a virtual convening from 12–12:45 p.m. on Tuesday, June 15, to enjoy some summer learning with a front row seat to inspiring local and national colleagues, alongside Colorado peers. Feel free to share this opportunity with others in your school or district – all are welcome!
