We will see how districts and providers are working together to connect students at home. We will hear from ISPs about how they stepped up to address the challenge that arose at the onset of COVID and what they learned. Providers will discuss the best practices they discovered in the spring and how they are implementing them this fall. We will also hear from school districts about how these solutions and partnerships have helped them support their students and teachers in the transition to remote learning.
