Are y'all working on a plan to improve the virtual learning in our schools that is going to be necessary this fall?
laryn weaver

I also want to know how to remove the barriers for low income, minorities and elderly. What methods are available to engage?
Sarah Nichols

Also -- virtual events need to be accessible for people with disabilities. Image descriptions, closed captioning, etc. My organization Able SC offers virtual event accessibility counseling!
