The EdSurge newsroom is regularly updating this page with the latest major updates and announcements.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued “Interim Guidance for Administrators of US Childcare Programs and K-12 Schools” in an effort to help school leaders plan, prepare and respond to the coronavirus disease. “Information provided should help childcare programs, schools, and their partners understand how to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 within childcare and school communities and facilities.”


Common Sense Media has launched two new webpages—one for families, another for educators—filled with free tips and tools for supporting children while they are confined to their homes during school closures caused by COVID-19. The site for parents provides resources for helping children understand the pandemic; focus on their mental health and well-being; and stay engaged through reading, games and other media. The page for teachers offers advice for conducting virtual learning, understanding digital citizenship and communicating with and supporting families.


The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), a nonprofit that provides resources for social and emotional learning (SEL), offers tips and guidelines for school leaders to support the social and emotional needs of adults and students. The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence also offers resources and information on this topic here.


The Center for Reinventing Public Education, out of the University of Washington, has launched a project to track how states and school districts are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the types of remote learning and support services they are offering to students during widespread, prolonged closures. In the first iteration of its database, the CRPE has analyzed the plans of 46 U.S. school districts, ranging in size and geographic location.


The Future of Privacy Forum has compiled a repository of privacy and data protection resources related to COVID-19 as schools and districts prepare to support students and staff remotely.
