How do we quantify the impact of Covid-related learning disruption on North Carolina’s students? Where is help needed the most? What is the NC Department of Public Instruction doing to address the impact of the pandemic on students and teachers?

Join us for a special Shaftesbury Society event with State Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt and Dr. Jeni Corn, director of research and evaluation at the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, as we discuss these questions and more.

As schools across North Carolina focus on efforts to recover ground lost over the past two years, Superintendent Truitt will share her vision, called Operation Polaris, aimed at achieving gains for public education in the state.

Dr. Corn will share a report recently released by the Office of Learning Recovery and Acceleration  to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee on NCDPI’s Impact of Lost Instructional Time Analysis.

Using these findings, North Carolina Department of Public Instruction seeks to better understand learning recovery and acceleration programs that are most needed and highlight those that have best served students.

This special Shaftesbury event will include a short presentation and discussion about strategic priorities for recovery and report results.

Key findings from the statewide summary report are available here, and the NCDPI press release is available here.

After the presentation, there will be an opportunity for Q&A for those who are attending in-person.

Bring your lunch and join us!

For those who cannot make it in-person, we will continue to stream Shaftesbury events live on our Facebook and YouTube channels (you do not need to register to view online).
