Dr. Marcie Perdue, Associate Superintendent of Student Services, has been named to a six-person provincial panel that will explore the impact Covid-19 has had on children and youth.
The Child and Youth Well-Being Review panel, co-chaired by MLA for Calgary-South East Matt Jones and Minister of Children’s Services Rebecca Schulz, will work to understand the full scope of the psychological, social, educational and physical impacts resulting from and related to the COVID-19 pandemic on children and youth.
The panel will learn from researchers, educators, health-care professionals and mental health experts, as well as Alberta parents and kids. It will then provide recommendations to government in the fall of 2021, to help support young people both now and into the future.
