RCOE Fall Planning

As we begin to put plans in place to move into our 2020-2021 academic year, a task force of Reich College of Education "Think Partners" has been recruited to develop strategies and ideas to address the areas of facility needs, curriculum and instruction needs, community engagement needs, and social/emotional needs in our setting. Creative and innovative feedback is desired to help our RCOE community create a functional plan for success in the coming year.
