In this edWebinar, the Brooklyn Laboratory school community in partnership with Turnaround for Children, EL Education, and City Year demonstrates how schools must go beyond safety measures to meet the needs of students and ensure that every young person has a relationship with a trusted adult to provide the support they need to learn and grow.

On August 12th Brooklyn Laboratory Charter Schools (LAB) announced the launch of its Success Coaching Playbook to help schools nationwide consider how they can train staff to help every student navigate different learning environments and succeed in a COVID-19 world. Given the financial and health challenges created by COVID-19, as well as ongoing racial trauma, students need support in a variety of learning contexts, including remote, in-person, and hybrid options. Brooklyn LAB is training a range of adults—including teachers, support staff, administrators, and teaching fellows—to be the primary support people for designated sets of students, working with each student individually to make sure they are set up for success.

Hear from key partners in the development of the Success Coaching Playbook: Pam Cantor, M.D. from Turnaround for Children, Jennifer Boyce and Kirsten Davis from City Year, and Ron Berger from EL Education. Learn vital information and get access to practical resources to ensure that every young person in your learning context has access to a safe, supportive, and knowledgeable adult who can effectively serve our learners and guide them through trauma, stress, and upheaval.

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
