COVID-19 Resources for Principals
Resources for principals have been compiled by a CDE-wide, cross-unit working group to ensure principals can feel empowered to confidently lead their school communities in order to do what’s best for each student. This webpage was developed in an effort to meet the high stakes demands of teaching and learning during COVID-19. For general resources for principals, return to the Principal Resources webpage.
For questions or comments, contact the Principal Leadership Cross-Unit Work Group via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
