Case studies will focus on how to use data to best support students as they return to in person learning environments following COVID-19 virtual instruction.

  • Participants will develop an understanding of how trauma is present in schools, specifically through student behaviors that may be a result of COVID-19 pandemic and then return to in person learning.
