COVID Town Halls & Classroom Series

MSM Town Hall Meetings

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closes schools across the nation, education systems are scrambling to meet the needs of schools, families, and students during these unprecedented times. As administrators, we carry much on our shoulders as we attempt to navigate new regulations, finances, human impacts, and plan for the months ahead when schools will re-open.

MSM plans to provide an opportunity for our member schools to come together, town hall style, and discuss issues and solutions relevant to our schools, state and region. For the next eight weeks MSM board members will moderate discussions about what we are working through as schools and the solutions we are finding.

Join us every Wednesday, beginning May 13th, from 8AM-8:45AM. Each week’s discussion topic will be driven by community need/interest, timely issues, and new regulations that come about.

Following meeting topics will be determined at the end of each week’s town hall. We will send a weekly email reminder about the town hall meetings and requesting questions for that week in advance of the meeting.
