Every School Healthy: WSCC Policies in Support of Equity in Education

Every School Healthy: WSCC Policies in Support of Equity in Education

January 11th, 2021 at 2:00pm-3:30pm EST

Presented by Holly Hunt, Lora Henderson, Alexandra Mays, Deborah Temkin, Jennifer Ng’andu and Jeanette Elstein

How do we make every school healthy in a COVID environment? What is a healthy school when education is remote or in a hybrid form? How have school districts around the country used  WSCC to advance equity in education and health? What lessons can we learn  for the rest of the school year and beyond? Join ASHA for the second of two round-table discussions on these timely and challenging questions. Authors from the December 2020 special issues of the Journal of School Health on the theme, Every School Healthy will discuss the policies currently in place, as well as the policy gaps and opportunities. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify at least two state or district WSCC supporting policies that can support healthy schools in remote or hybrid learning situations.
  2. Identify at least two areas of policy gap or opportunity for increasing equity in WSCC.  
  3. Identify at least one policy priority area for their state or school district
  4. Identify a personal “next-step” in considering equity in WSCC supporting policies
