Preparing for Post-Election:
Considering How to Handle the Opening Minutes of School (and the rest of the day) on Wednesday, November 4

For: All Educators





Thursday, October 29, 2020; 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.


Tuesday, November 3, 2020, Election Day, is a big day for our students, their families, our faculty and staff. No matter what the decision, there will continue to be hope, fear, division, and powerful emotions within all of our school communities. In preparation for the opening minutes of school (and all that follows), join Dr. Deborah Offner, who will offer a framework for analysis over advocacy and help us learn how we might infuse empathy, connection, tolerance -- even unity-- in the moments leading up to, during, and just after the Presidential election. After a brief presentation, Dr. Offner will lead an interactive discussion for participants.
