Equal Opportunity for Remote Learning

It's back-to-school time and there are still many uncertainties in the minds of families about their children's educational futures. What we do know, though, is that ensuring children receive a quality education is a top priority for our community.

Our recent VoicesDMV Community Insights survey found that 85% of residents of the Greater Washington region believe that local government should prioritize ALL children receiving a quality education.

How can we ensure our community’s children and youth are receiving quality education in this new, virtual environment? This event brings together local leaders to discuss these questions and share lessons learned about addressing learning loss, the digital divide, and family/community support. 

Speakers include:

  • Misty Allen, Vice President, Comcast, Government & Community Affairs, Beltway Region at Comcast

  • Everett Davis, Director, Student, Family and School Services in the Office of Student and Family Support and Engagement at Montgomery County Public Schools 

  • Craig Rice, Council Member, Chair of the Education Committee in Montgomery County 

  • Sulema Middleton Stewart, VP of Community Life Programs, Montgomery Housing Partnerships

  • Tonia Wellons, President & CEO, Greater Washington Community Foundation
