Webinar on COVID Safety in S.C. Charter Schools Planned; Paul Van Slyke to Speak
Atlanta (February 2021) Goode Van Slyke Partner and Co-Founder Paul Van Slyke will speak at an upcoming event designed to inform educators at South Carolina charter schools about ideas and actions to make educational facilities safer during the pandemic.
The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) helps schools improve COVID-19 prevention efforts. “While these funds are available, it can be daunting for schools to navigate the most effective strategies,” Van Slyke said. “Panelists will share important information about dedicating resources toward making realistic and effective changes.” Van Slyke will join air quality experts, engineers and educators in sharing useful designs, products and strategies for safer facilities. The invitation-only webinar, “Facility Readiness: Short and Long term Moves to Ensure You Have Facility Success,” is set for Thursday, March 4. The event is organized by The Charter Facility Team and The Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina.
