As school buildings are reopening, new and ongoing issues are surfacing around health, access and equity. Join Grantmakers for Education for a funder conversation to learn about real-time, on the ground challenges and successes for districts, educators and students.

Randi Weingarten, president of American Federation of Teachers, and Becky Pringle, president-elect of the National Education Association, will share emerging practices to integrate students, teachers and staff into the new school year, including insights from AFT's newly re-released guide, Reopening School Buildings Safely, and NEA's recent report, All Hands on Deck: Guidance Regarding Reopening School Buildings. Education grantmakers will have unique access to the insights of two leaders from major unions that are committed to advancing high quality public education. In the second half, we will open up the conversation to learn strategies that other foundations are implementing to support school reopening in their communities. Come with your questions and ideas.

This event is intended for members and education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.
