Jenny Betz; Center to Improve Social and Emotional Learning and School Safety
As the COVID-19 pandemic impacts communities across the country and the world, schools must find remote ways to continue providing learning and enrichment opportunities for students while also remaining committed to the social and emotional needs of the entire school community.

This brief offers practical guidance for educators and other school staff, and for administrators and other leaders, to help ensure that school communities are effective, cohesive, collaborative, healthy, and sustainable while coping with the stresses of social isolation, school closures, and changes to how services are provided.
