October 19, 2020

You are not alone if you are struggling to navigate the changes that are coming from the CARES Act, Title Funding, as well as the new carry over rules. Click here to join our webinar on May 21st at 1:30 PM EST and learn from expert panelists at K20Connect how to provide high-quality professional development opportunities to your current and aspiring school leaders through the CARES Act.

In this webinar, you will learn about

- The impact of the CARES Act on K-12 Education

- The Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER Fund)

- The Rethink K-12 School Models & Continue to Learn Microgrants

- Waivers for carryover funds

When confronted with challenging situations, school leaders sift through their past experiences searching for relevant instances from which to draw knowledge. If learning from your mistakes is the best way to experience growth, how do we provide these learning experiences to current and aspiring leaders?

At SchoolSims, we have created the solution by providing manufactured experiences through online, software simulations that assist in growing current and aspiring school leaders. Simulations can be facilitated in-person or through any online meeting service. When gathering in groups is discouraged or not possible, online simulation training can be safely and effectively deployed. 

The Pandemic has had a major impact on our schools and created an environment filled with challenges. In this simulation, you will face, prioritize, and deal with a variety of issues and challenges associated with transitioning to and working in a virtual environment. You will deal with trade-offs between academic rigor and engagement, as well as maintaining structures and systems while building and sustaining relationships, all while managing the satisfaction of a large number of stakeholders with very diverse needs.
