Alejandro Ortiz, New Britain, CT Public Schools, how did you support our most disadvantaged students during this time? EL and SPED students
Jackie Wilson

Communication to the principal is essential since they are the chief information officer for their schools. Parents look to them for answers. Great job GCS
Jackie Wilson
01:05:26
Great examples Nerissa and Jay.
Valerie Truesdale
01:05:29
The specificity of these strategies is greatly appreciated. Love the discussion of how leadership has grown through the past few months
Jackie Wilson
01:06:28
So glad to see that we are focusing on the care of our students but also the care of the principals....
Alan Ingram
01:06:43
question for principals--what do you wish you had in the way of support that you did not get?
Daniel Mello
01:09:39
Consistent messages from CDC, state and local health departments that impacted school decisions.
Jackie Wilson
01:10:07
The leadership of these Principal Supervisors during the disruption of Covid19 is extraordinary. The constant communication, the support, resource sharing, and care demonstrates how adaptive and resilient we are as educators
Jess Gregory
01:10:51
That is a very good point!
Laura Foxx
01:11:16
I agree with Daniel Mello. Everything is so fluid with COVID infection levels that I have to create multiple plans and be ready to implement all at a moment's notice.
Glenn Pethel
01:11:56
So much agree with Jackie. We're seeing extraordinary leadership in extraordinary times. We're seeing just how much leadership matters!
Anabelle Diaz-Santiago
01:13:21
yes modeling is so important.
Jackie Wilson
01:16:01
We realize how important it was for the department of CIA to work with the other departments to make the adaptations necessary to serve students in a virtual environment....Principal Supervisors were helping with the navigation of this work in collaboration with principals
Scott Rhymer

Loved Dr. Royster's reference to our Clemson Tigers!
Derick Spaulding
01:17:05
Well stated Jay
Jackie Wilson
01:17:59
Jay and Scott you are providing so many examples of how high schools are complex and this shift created the need to recreate major milestones such as graduation.
Rosie Vojtek
01:19:29
What do principals and supervisors plan to do differently in the fall based on what they learned this year? And, if we go back to the brick and mortar schools in the fall, what, if anything, will they do differently, because of what we learned during the physical distance that worked too well not do keep doing?
Alan Ingram
01:19:44
Thanks Jill for question five!
Glenn Pethel
01:21:19
I so appreciate the thoughtful questions and the superb execution of this webinar. I'm not surprised. Dr. Baker and Dr. Royster are great models of superintendent leadership. Obviously, we see how their influence is reflected in the responses from Jay, Nerissa, and Scott. Kudos to all and much thanks to Valerie and AASA for timely, relevant learning.
Jackie Wilson
01:22:20
I agree Nerissa. The emotional supports for teachers, principals and students is something we must tend to--and we must definitely keep our focus on the issues around equity and access.
Janice Epperson
01:22:23
Is this recorded and wil it be sent---I apologize if you have addressed this
Nicole Cathey
01:22:45
@Rosie Vojtek I plan to continue to support the mental, physical and emotional resources of my Principals.
Valerie Truesdale
