When schools reopen this fall, it won't be business as usual. New health and safety standards developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic necessitate a radical rethinking of the way we serve students. Afterschool and OST programs are key stakeholders as states and school districts formulate plans to reopen schools this fall with staggered and or hybrid schedules. In this session, hear from afterschool programs and statewide afterschool networks on how they are working to ensure afterschool programs are included in any reopening guidance. Learn how you can play a role in the process in your community.
