Facing New Challenges: Back to School in 2021
Webinar: COVID-19 Classroom Chat: RE-Adapting to the Classroom in 2021 | 4-5:00 p.m. ET
After more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic, school staff and students will return to school this fall for the 2021-2022 school year.
SOPHE invites a panel of school health experts from a national perspective to a higher education perspective to share their experiences with re-adapting to the classroom. Topics may include addressing mental health challenges, describing experiences with being back in person (and release of the new guidance), and tackling the barriers that come with reacclimating to the school environment. This topic focuses on teaching/returning to school at the K-12 level.
- Discuss the challenges K-12 teachers face and essential health education skills for the 2021-22 school year (1.3.2)
- Identify the environmental factors that teachers have or must address for a safe return to the 2021-22 school year (1.3.3)
SOPHE has a dedicated Community of Practice for Children, Adolescents and School Health Education (CASH CoP). Participating in CoPs is a member benefit of SOPHE.
