There is no doubt that the COVID-19 crisis has created enormous challenges for our nation’s public school systems. Almost overnight, schools were asked to move their entire operation online, including not only teaching and learning, but also the myriad other physical and social supports that families access through their school system. In a crisis, immediate decisions need to be made quickly, and they were. However, as the nation moves toward reopening its public spaces and considers the coming school year, there are many lingering questions and concerns to address.
AASA was pleased to join with the American Federation of Teachers, the Consortium for Educational Change, the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National Education Association and the National School Boards Association on "Collaborating in a Crisis: Working Together to Safely Reopen Our School Buildings": https://bit.ly/2Mxm43F

On May 6th the U.S. Department of Education released the long-anticipated Title IX regulations. For the first time ever, the Department's Title IX regulations define sexual harassment, including sexual assault, as unlawful sex discrimination. It also changes how districts can investigate Title IX claims and the adjudication process.

Districts have to begin implementing the Title IX regulations in August and to assist district leaders and principals, AASA and NASSP have lined up a great team of K-12 legal experts from the law firm of Hogan Lovells who will explain the regulations, describe what Title IX practices and policies must change under the new regulations and what steps school leaders should take to prepare for the implementation of these regulations. In addition, attendees will hear about how these regulations impact the policy discussions on Capitol Hill, as well as litigation to stop the regulations from going into effect.

WEBINAR (5/12, 2pm EDT): Alarming drops in FAFSA completion and surveys showing students are highly uncertain about their college plans has catapulted the education sector into responding in innovative and urgent ways. The National College Attainment Network (NCAN) remains committed to helping districts and schools take five actions, right now, to help students stay on a path for success after high school graduation. Join NCAN as they walk through their latest resource guide for district and school leaders. The guide includes key questions to ask, critical next steps, and a curated list of resources for each of five critical steps for helping students, no matter their postsecondary plans. In particular, the webinar will address:

• Understanding that while COVID-related uncertainty is natural, it’s vital that students continue with postsecondary planning and explore all their options.
• Conducting an immediate senior exit survey so that districts have the most relevant, timely information to assist students with their particular next steps.
• Supporting students to complete the FAFSA in light of recent declines in filing.

While the world has faced some dramatic changes recently, one thing that hasn't changed is AASA's commitment to preparing a diverse talent pipeline of highly-prepared leaders to support America's schools and communities.

As part of this commitment, we'd like to invite you to join the 2020 National Women's Leadership Consortium.

The Consortium is specifically designed for women in top positions of leadership and women who aspire to those roles. The theme is Leadership Wellness Matters. Leaders need balance in their lives – especially in the current climate – attending to social, emotional, and familial needs to be great thinkers and decision makers.
