Addressing Unfinished Learning

In an effort to support educators in reopening schools during this unprecedented time, a task force was formed to create resources to support the reengagement of ALL students in the fall of 2020. This Statewide Guiding Coalition was formed in April 2020. The coalition, composed of administrators throughout the state who are currently practicing in a Professional Learning Community, have made a collective commitment to share, serve, and support ALL students in Arkansas through best practices. The guiding coalition in coordination with a group of practicing classroom educators throughout the state, are designing a playbook with model plans to address student learning.
