Now that staying at home during COVID-19 has become the daily routine for families throughout New Jersey, our educators and students are quickly adapting to remote learning. 

The Department of Education’s role in advising and overseeing remote learning and other operations is crucial to school districts’ success in meeting student needs. To explore and answer some of the questions that distance learning raises, NJ Spotlight and NJTV News will convene a virtual roundtable with state Education Commissioner Lamont Repollet and two of his top staff to discuss the expanding array of challenges facing the state’s schools and the department. 

Please join us on Tuesday, April 7, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. for NJ Spotlight and NJTV News’ second COVID-19 education webinar as we discuss the Department of Education’s guidance concerning New Jersey’s fast-evolving education landscape.
