As we face the challenges of remote learning, students, educators, parents, and community partners are working hard to meet the needs of every student. Join us for this informative session fully hosted in Spanish by Buncombe County Government about the 2020-2021 school year. Student support service staff from Asheville City Schools, Buncombe County Schools, and United Way will be discussing what the day-to-day may look like for our students and will be providing guidance, information, and resources available to support our student's learning. 

During the call, panelists will provide information on resources for student success as they adapt to distance and online learning. This conversation will be in Spanish and we will be offering English interpretation for listeners. This event will be live streamed in English on Buncombe County Government’s Facebook Page.
