How schools can reopen using data-driven decisions
When there seems to be no right answer to the reopening question, data can help schools make informed decisions for when and how to return to in-person instruction. Emily Oster, Professor of Economics at Brown University, partnered with a collective of national education organizations to create the National COVID-19 School Response Dashboard. Join this live webinar with Professor Emily Oster and Noelle Ellerson Ng, Associate Executive Director, Advocacy & Governance from AASA, The School Superintendents Association, as they explore the data and share how schools across the country can make data-driven decisions about when to re-open.
What you will learn in this webinar:
- Why schools need accurate COVID-19 data collection and reporting on a national level.
- How to enable your educators and community to take action.
- How your school or district can benchmark with a personalized local dashboard.
