At Roseville, and schools everywhere, the pandemic has toppled the walls separating school and home. Families and educators developed a new intimacy as they peered virtually into each other’s living rooms and overheard each other’s conversations. And as both sides labored to keep children learning, they leaned heavily on one another.

The pandemic forged new bonds between families and educators at schools like Roseville Community Charter School in Newark. The pandemic recovery will put those partnerships to the test.
