How local schools transformed and what it means for the future to be examined during free event on Friday, May 22.

Dr. Karen Chester will moderate an upcoming webinar tackling the issues of educating during a pandemic.

COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) shut down schools throughout the commonwealth, turned countless homes into classrooms and dramatically changed K-12 education. Now, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is hosting a free webinar examining how local districts rose to the challenge and implemented new systems for staff, students and families that kept learning and the preparation of our future workforce top of mind.

Intended to provide insight to business leaders, parents and education professionals alike, the NKY Chamber will host “Educating During a Pandemic: How Local Schools Transformed and What this Means for our Future Workforce” on Friday, May 22. The free webinar, taking place from 10 to 11 a.m., will examine how Northern Kentucky Schools transitioned to NTI (non-traditional instruction) and the new systems implemented for staff, students and families.

The event will bring together several speakers with varying perspectives as they examine how schools continue to function and what it means for the future of K-12 education.

Featured speakers for the event include:

Amy Razor, Executive Director, Northern Kentucky Cooperative for Educational Services (NKCES)
David Rust, Superintendent, Campbell County Schools / President, NKCES

Erika Bowles, Principal, Ballyshannon Middle School (Boone Co.)
Julia Pile, Boone Co. Schools Board of Education member and parent

The event will be moderated by Dr. Karen Cheser, Superintendent of Fort Thomas Independent Schools and GROW NKY College and Career Readiness Pillar Lead on behalf of Northern Kentucky Cooperative for Educational Services.
