This is an option to consider for planning for next fall, assessments.  Please review and sign up.


During these unprecedented times, I’ve been talking to educators across the nation about the challenges you are facing. I asked my teams to be responsive to our partners during this time, but to take a step back and only reach out if it’s highly relevant or urgent given the situation.

I am reaching out today because we have research that provides insights into the possible impacts of school closures on student achievement and what you may be facing come fall.

On Wednesday, April 22, we’re bringing together a team of experts for a live webinar. The panel will explore the implications of this research and share implications for practitioners and policymakers.

Our speakers will include:

  • Dr. Beth Tarasawa, Executive Vice President of Research, NWEA
  • Sal Khan, Founder and CEO, Khan Academy
  • Dr. Jesus Jara, Superintendent of the Clark County School District
  • Kimberly Cockrell, Chief Network Officer, Achievement Network

I believe this research and rich discussion from our webinar guests will be useful for your planning. Register today and share this link with your colleagues who may be interested. If you’re unable to attend, you can register to receive a link to the recording.

As you are navigating these times, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your account manager, partner support or me if we can provide any assistance. We’re in this together.

Best regards,

Chris Minnich
