The U.S. Department of Education is seeking positive examples of school reopening. Positive examples can be specific examples of success or inspiration, or broad examples of leadership, shared visions, and collective work. Please include a narrative that describes how the schools in your district have been able to reopen safely – and stay open. It would be helpful to address:
- How districts or schools have aligned with CDC guidance,
- How districts or schools have engaged teachers, families and community members/stakeholders,
- How districts or schools have leveraged federal COVID relief funding, and
- How the districts have prioritized teacher or school staff vaccinations.
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org and note “school reopening” in the subject line.
