Be heard about your student Covid experience.

Please share this far and wide to engage students throughout the state! 


State Superintendent Tony Thurmond and the California Department of Education (CDE) are hosting our very first Student Support Circle where we will hear directly from students about the challenges they have experienced amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Students will share how they have overcome their challenges and the CDE will also provide mental health resources during the presentation.


We hope the Student Support Circle will provide a space for students to build community and know they are not alone in their educational journey.
