Success After COVID - Two Agencies’ Perspectives

Session 1: 2:45-3:45 PM (Wednesday March 02, 2022)



With our DLAC Coach as the moderator, two administrators and two teachers will share their perspectives of how the Ideal 102 course helped shape and enhance their programs as we come out of these unprecedented challenges. The unique DLAC experience helped them survive, thrive, and dive into a more robust academic program for the 21-22 school year. Topics to be discussed will include: online registration, onboarding and instruction in class, the high flex approach to instruction, using a rubric to measure success, and MORE!
