CHICO, Calif. – Chico State held a webinar Thursday on COVID-19’s impact on education.

Associate Dean of the College of Communication and Education, Deborah Summers, said the coronavirus has changed the way students are being educated. A panel of teachers and administrators discussed the challenges of virtual instruction.

Chico State’s fall semester will be primarily online.

While educators say they don’t have all the answers to make it better, they do have ideas.

“More than 40% of minority high school seniors have said right now it’s unlikely they won’t go to college in the fall," said Summers during the webinar.

"We have to do much better outreach to families to make sure they know the importance of setting up schedules," shared Kristin Schrock, a principal at Little Chico Creek Elementary School.

Other topics in the webinar included whether to open schools, safety protocols, and how online or in-class teaching will look this year.
