Mind the Gaps: Planning <em>Now</em> to Target Learning Gaps Next Fall

Every year, educators face the challenge of supporting students who lack the prerequisite knowledge and skills needed for success in new grade-level curriculum. This problem will be exponentially worse this coming fall, as most students have missed significant direct instructional time, due to school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic. To close these gaps and ensure all students learn next year’s essential curriculum, schools must develop a highly effective system of interventions, beginning by providing targeted supports as part of core instruction.

To help educators face this unprecedented challenge, Solution Tree has worked with leading practitioners to design a three-part webinar series called Mind the Gaps. These virtual sessions will provide proven, practical actions that school leaders and classroom educators can take now to plan effective supports next fall.

NOTE: Each day’s session will be presented live, featuring the same material. Live participants will be able to ask questions on both days.
