The National School Boards Association’s COVID-19 Update webpage offers reopening information and guidance on response measures for boards of education. The page collects data and sample checklists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, plan analyses from the Center for Public Education, information from the Center for Safe Schools, and curriculum proposals.

A recently added resource, “Setting a New Course: A Legal Guide to Operating Schools in the Pandemic Era,” identifies key legal issues school leaders should be considering as they reopen schools, including areas where operational shifts may increase schools’ risk of legal liability.

The page also lists and links to special education and IDEA information, school reopening plans for several states, and facilities resources.
