The last days of summer can be stressful leading up to the first day of school. To help ease the transition as students return to class, Capistrano Unified School District officials held two interactive webinars to give parents and students peace of mind as they prepare to return to campus.
Both webinars were moderated by Ryan Burris, Chief Communications Officer, and were followed by a question-and-answer session.
An elementary school webinar was held Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, featuring Dr. Susan Holliday, Associate Superintendent of Education Services; Dr. Greg Merwin, Associate Superintendent of Student Support Services; and Brad Shearer, Assistant Superintendent, Curriculum and Instruction Preschool-Grade 5.
The conversation included an overview of programs and improvements to elementary campuses; information about full-day kindergarten, STEAM/STEM programs, #CapoForward schools, innovation labs, Next Generation Science Standards, technology, and more.
