Back to School

Schools are finally reopening. Though there is much excitement from students, families, and teachers about returning to campus, there is also much apprehension and uncertainty. Questions about managing academic slides, safety, resolving educational inequities, and even the ongoing social, political divide weigh on everyone trying to adjust to the new normal…including the schooling experience.

Experts have all agreed attending to the mental health of everyone during reopening is crucial and is the best approach to support teaching and learning. There are a myriad of resources and advice regarding effective strategies to support students, teachers, and families. This collection of ideas, presented in infographics, aims to add to the tools to support you as site administrators in your planning before and during reopening. We hope you will find a few useful ideas for you and your school teams to build upon to smooth out your school reopening.
