Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic

As health officials take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") into communities across the United States, schools are playing an important role. Through collaboration and coordination with State and local health departments, State and local educational agencies, other education officials, and elected officials, schools can disseminate critical information about the disease and its potential transmission to students, families, staff, and community. In addition, as schools manage closures, they can support students, their families, and staff during these uncertain times.  To help schools in communicating key information and buiding a safe, supportive, virtual learning environment, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments has identified resources that can help.
