Building Better from Disruption

Building Better from Disruption is a virtual webinar series developed collaboratively by Growing Inland Achievement (GIA), Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE), and San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The goal of the series is to build upon lessons learned from districts’ responses to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on schools and school systems. With guidance from regional experts including, Miki Inbody, Amanda Corridan, and Cynthia Glover Woods, the content is designed to provided education partners, particularly administrators and teacher leaders working at the school site level, with best practices and resources that support students’ successful return to in-person instruction.  The series focuses on the essential areas of social-emotional learning, accelerated learning, and community partnerships.  During each session, participants will have the opportunity to learn, connect, and interact with expert practitioners and session participants.
