The only organization dedicated solely to helping state boards advance equity and excellence in public education.

Dear Members,

During our COVID-19 online office hours last week, we discussed international recovery efforts and reopening strategies for schools with Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond, California state board chair and president of Learning Policy Institute, and her LPI colleague Hanna Melnick. Indiana state leaders Rep. Bob Behning, Sen. Jeff Raatz, and state board member Dr. Byron Ernest also shared their state’s approach to the question of reopening schools.

We will continue this conversation on Thursday, May 7, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm EDT, including some of the reopening frameworks for schools and districts recently published by several organizations. You can find information on joining the session here. We look forward to hearing how your states have begun making plans.

Please inquire about accessing past recordings or upcoming sessions.


Robert Hull
President and CEO
