K-12 school leaders are operating in an environment like no other. Many students, teachers and staff remain in a fully remote learning model, and predictions are that some sort of hybrid learning will be the way of the future. This opens the doors to new challenges, including how to ensure broadband access to all those who need it, how to minimize the risk of cyberattacks and how to pay for this amid revenue shortfalls.

On March 2nd at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET, the Center for Digital Education is hosting a webcast to walk school district leaders through the funding, security and technology considerations they should be making as they build out a strategy to prepare for the new normal in K-12 education. We’ll also offer tips and best practices to help overcome some of the pressing challenges schools face, including:
• Ensuring equitable access to educational resources
• Protecting endpoints whether they are on school campuses or off
• Taking advantage of CARES Act dollars and other federal funding to optimize costs
