  • Engage with a panel of your peers from Atlanta, Georgia and Fresno, California, both Honor Roll Members, who will share how they are partnering with the school system to share and use data to set baselines and targets, track progress and promote accountability for outcomes (Atlanta) and intentionally addressing learning losses arising from the COVID-19 pandemic through digital literacy initiatives; broad connectivity projects; and device distributions and technical assistance (Fresno). Speakers include:
