Catapult Learning Presents Free COVID-19 Recovery Webinar, Addressing Learning Loss and Social-Emotional Needs in K-12 Students

Learn how to maximize COVID relief funding to keep students engaged and on track

CAMDEN, N.J., Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Catapult Learning, a provider of intervention programs for students and professional development solutions for teachers in both public and nonpublic K-12 schools, today announced a free new webinar in its series examining the impact of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, on schools, districts and states.

Held live on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 4 p.m. ET, the hour-long session, “COVID Recovery: Maximizing Relief Funds to Address Learning Loss & Social-Emotional Needs in K12”, will provide guidance on how to maximize recovery funds to accelerate student learning. Specifically, the webinar will focus on:

  • Mitigating COVID learning loss and accelerating learning
  • Addressing how COVID has impacted mental health and well-being
  • Supporting the unique needs of special education students
  • Utilizing professional learning and coaching to support teachers and school leaders

Co-hosted by Catapult Learning’s Devon Wible, vice president of academics, and Jamila Winder, vice president of school partnerships, the webinar will discuss solutions that can be deployed in virtual, hybrid and in-person instructional settings.

According to a 2020 report by McKinsey & Company, students may lose up to 12 months of learning by the end academic year due to disruptions and trauma caused by the pandemic-driven public health crisis.

“COVID-19 is having a very serious negative impact on the mental health and academic development of students across the country, and the data regarding learning loss is staggering,” said Wible. “In addition, we know that many educators and school leaders are struggling with trauma associated with the pandemic. Catapult Learning is not only focused on keeping the education community informed, but also in developing research-based programs to support the entire school community, including students, families, and teachers and school leaders. We aim to confront these issues through a better understanding of how to access and use COVID relief funds to mitigate learning loss and accelerate learning.”

Previous Catapult Learning webinars, addressing the impact of the COVID-19 relief package on nonpublic schools, local education agencies (LEAs) and state education agencies (SEAs), are now available for download.
