In this special episode of the CharterNation Podcast, we bring you a rebroadcast of a CCSA Facebook Live Event that took place on Dec. 9th and focused on how charter public schools are supporting the mental health and wellness of student amid the pandemic. The event was timed to the release of CCSA's 2021 Portrait of the Movement report called Are the Kids OK? How California Charter Public Schools Support Social-Emotional Wellbeing Schoolwide.
CCSA's President/CEO Myrna Castrejón hosted the discussion. Special guests included Jennifer Kress, CCSA's Sr. Managing Director of School Performance, Accountability and Research who authored the report; Trisha Lancaster, Executive Director of SOAR Charter Academy in San Bernardino; and Dr. Debra Shroeder, Executive Director of Vibrant Minds Charter School in Anaheim.
