Franczek Webinar—Leadership in the Time of COVID

School leaders have always served a crucial role in communities, and we can’t imagine anyone managing the Coronavirus crisis without them. Our regular attorney panelists Shelli Anderson, Nicki Bazer, Jennifer Smith, and Jackie Gharapour Wernz, are joined by very special guests Dr. Nick Polyak, Superintendent at Leyden School District 212, and Dr. Michael Lubelfeld, Superintendent at North Shore School District 112. Our panel discusses leadership in the time of COVID-19, including navigating communications with the community, working with teacher unions, and making tough decisions.

Nick and Mike are award-winning superintendents. They co-moderate the monthly Twitter chat #suptchat, and they co-authored the books The Unlearning Leader: Leading for Tomorrow’s Schools Today and Student Voice: From Invisible to Invaluable
