Coronavirus Resources for K-12 Schools
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak spreads throughout the United States and schools around the country are forced to close, district leaders are faced with a wide range of challenges, including how to transition to online teaching and learning, how to manage food distribution, how to find work for non-teacher employees during school closures, and of course, how to keep students and staff safe and healthy.
