Taking School Online With a Student-Centered Approach

The public health crisis posed by the COVID-19 outbreak has many schools rapidly shifting to online and distance learning.

The resources in this packet are designed to help teachers approach online learning with a focus on sustaining community, supporting students, and creating engaging, meaningful learning experiences.
