As N-8 and K-8 schools anticipate the last year for the Class of 2021, those students and their families are preparing for the transition to their next schools. Will the Upper School Admissions process to those schools look different next year in the current COVID-19 environment and, if so, how? What will be the same and what will change? While the answers to many questions are still being determined, much remains constant and can be answered.
Join our panel of admissions professionals from a variety of schools as they discuss evolving thinking around questions like these:
- How will receiving schools assess student progress from the final trimester of 2019-20?
- How will schools ensure an equitable process for all applicants?
- How will standardized tests take place and be made available to all?
- How will receiving schools handle campus visits if travel or school visitation is limited?
