WATCH: Back to School town hall: Learning During a Pandemic

Local education leaders discuss what's next for schools in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: Read 4 takeaways from the town hall here.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused uncertainty and lingering questions about how or when students, teachers and other education staff can safely return to classrooms.

This summer, KSAT 12 has covered those questions from all angles on our Back to School page — pressing local and state leaders on evolving policies, speaking to teachers, parents and students about their concerns and ideas, and diving deep through KSAT Explains to shine light on the biggest issues.

Now, we’re asking you to join us for a live town hall — Learning During a Pandemic — featuring local education leaders on Aug. 11 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. We are already collecting questions from viewers on our Chat with KSAT page, so please let us know what you would like answered.

The special will air live on KSAT 12, and KSAT-TV and for the first time, viewers will have the chance to join the conversation and ask questions through our new live chat feature. We’re excited to bring this important town hall to our viewers on-air or online.

Viewers can ask questions live or ahead of time on our Chat with KSAT page, where you can also watch the full broadcast.
