In the span of a few weeks, sweeping actions intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 across our nation have created unprecedented new educational realities for families, schools, and partners.

Other realities may feel very different, full of opportunity to shift our systems in ways that previously seemed impossible. Listen to this webinar from ConnectED to learn more about ensuring equity during this unusual time.
This webinar from ConnectED shows how students do career research using their Day at Work video library and lesson plans from the Exploring College, Career, and Community Options (ECCCO) curriculum.
