Teacher, Staff, and Family Preparation for Next School Year


During periods of uncertainty, planning and communication are critical focus areas for leaders. Planning without a solid understanding of what the fall will bring is a challenge, but there are areas of certainty that we can plan for now.

Local school boards, schools and districts are encouraged to partner with key stakeholders, including families, students, and community members, as an essential aspect of drafting plans. Clear, proactive, intentional two-way communication with these groups will help districts and schools create the most feasible plans for next school year.

Additionally, schools and districts are encouraged to provide regular communications about what they know and don’t know to help keep students, staff, and families informed. This section will provide information on planning and communication, and templates for this work.
