School and office closures occured nationwide and social distancing guidelines and restrictions were forefront of everyone’s mind. While things nationwide continue to evolve and people get used to the new normal, there are still a ton of questions parents and their families have for the upcoming school year.

This panel of experts contrived of educators, special education specialists, and parents, will share their experiences in the spring and how you can better adjust for the fall.
