"Staff from the Exceptional Children department in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools convened a group of their teachers in Spring 2020 to share their perspectives and ideas. ​This advisory group includes approximately 20 teachers of exceptional children across Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. ​In this Voices from the Field video, the National Center on Intensive Intervention spoke with four teachers in the advisory group about their work during COVID-19 restrictions. Daphyne Brown, Kendra Gluck, Heather Earnhardt, and Thomas Gough discuss communicating with families​, adapting to virtual instruction​, adapting instructional materials​, continuing efforts in fall 2020, and sharing advice for other teachers​. ​

Presenters: Dr. Tessie Bailey (PROGRESS Center Director), Emily Surapaneni (Process Coordinator for Columbia Public Schools in Columbia, MO), and Dr. Kevin Rubenstein (CASE Policy and Legislative Chair and Assistant Superintendent for Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 in Elmhurst, IL)"
