Better Together: A Coordinated Response for Principals and District Leaders

2020 Policy/Policy brief

It is no secret that successful school leadership starts with the principal. District leadership must prioritize the needs of principals who in turn, will empower the school-based crisis response teams to address the needs of the school community. This brief provides readers with a structured approach to manage the social-emotional well-being of the adults in the school building, post COVID-19 closures. The phrase, “better together,” has never been truer as school communities embark on the uncharted territory of virtual, hybrid and/or physical re-entry after an extended school closure.

One way or another, we are returning to school. We may be in classrooms, or at home, or both. But it will be our school, and it will be different from when we left.

This toolkit is for the principal and the team the principal assembles to help everyone return to school, whatever that may look like. Suggested actions, recommended resources, quick tip sheets—the toolkit is a handy computer desktop companion for helping people with Change, Communication, Collaboration, and Care in the time of COVID.

Schools' First and Forever Responders: Preparing and Supporting Teachers

2020 Practice guide PDF

Schools’ First and Forever Responders: Preparing and Supporting Teachers in the Time of COVID-19 elevates a rationale and considerations for evidence-based strategies and innovative approaches to support teachers and teacher candidates during and following the COVID-19 crisis. Because teachers are the most vital in-school education resource, supporting the teacher workforce through the disruptions created by COVID-19 is essential to ensure continuity of learning for students. As schools and districts rush to meet immediate workforce needs, longer term planning is critical in light of looming budget declines. For each of the considerations highlighted in the brief, we cite re search or examples from other states and districts that can be helpful to learn more and guide decision-making.
