COVID-19 is shuttering K-12 schools and some may not reopen for the remainder of the school year. While military families are not alone in managing the implications of this issue, the impact on our military’s readiness and overall national security must be considered. There is no such thing as “non-essential” military personnel, and service members must continue to operate at the highest level of readiness in the face of this national emergency.
This Virtual Town Hall will feature top national military child education experts who will brief you on the unique pressures military-impacted schools are facing, and they will discuss how defense communities are adapting in real-time to meet the educational needs of military children.
Watch Managing the Impact of School Closures for Military Families on March 24, 3-4pm (EST).
