Session Description: Every state and school district is struggling with how to effectively manage the public health risks of COVID-19 while simultaneously resuming the core functions of schools and curriculum programming. This public health crisis has had a physical and emotion impact that will exist for many years. Within this scenario, the Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education (the Society) remains committed to working with colleagues in departments of education and health across the country, many partner organizations, as well as state- and district-level leaders to support the health and well-being of school staff, high quality professional development, meaningful instruction in school health and physical education, and academic progress of all students. In this process, we are cognizant of needs of vulnerable student groups such as early learners, ESL pupils, students experiencing homelessness, economically disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities. Through a series of professional development events during the summer and fall, the Society strives to offer access to model guidance documents, technical assistance, collegial support, best practices in a new instructional era, and alternate teaching and learning solutions to continue quality instruction under evolving circumstances. This session on The Shifting Public Health Landscape and School Re-entry is designed to address the following objectives.

Learning Objectives

  • Educate national, state, and district-level leaders about how the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates existing disparities
  • Share state planning models for fall school re-entry of staff and students
  • Provide support and technical assistance to state and district leaders who are developing and implementing school re-entry plans
  • Facilitate a discussion with national and state level leaders on how to access policy and program resources
