Would like to participate in the panel as COVID-19 has impacted many of my African American students and due to the trauma they have experience in their homes and neighborhoods, I have been interacting with my East Cleveland City School familes remotely to increase physical literacy and physical activity.
Would be great to have public report outs of the Task Force meetings – with opportunities for public comment- and include timeline of strategy dissemination.
