Helping Parents, Teachers and Students
Succeed During COVID:
A Virtual Event

Teaching and learning in the midst of a pandemic is unchartered territory for everyone involved. But polling commissioned by College Success Arizona and a teacher survey conducted by Expect More Arizona indicate parents and educators share many of the same concerns, as well as similar goals. Chief among those goals is a desire to ensure the success of every student and keep kids on a path toward training and education beyond high school.

Join Expect More Arizona and College Success Arizona as we explore the impact of COVID-19 and the resources parents, teachers and students believe are needed to be successful during the pandemic.

Participants will hear from Nathaniel Rios, a teacher at Flowing Wells High School; Rebecca McKay, a Phoenix parent of three high school students; and Ivan Carrillo, a senior at Nogales High School. Issues discussed will include:

  • Ways in which the pandemic has changed students’ plans for postsecondary education.
  • What parents believe their children need to be prepared for education or training beyond high school.
  • How teachers feel about distance learning, returning to the classroom, and helping their students prepare for postsecondary education.
