State Actions to Support Social, Emotional, and Academic Development: Fostering Connectedness in the Pandemic Era [open pdf - 213KB]
From the Document: "Social distancing and school closures forced by the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic present extraordinary challenges for education. While we are only just beginning to understand the impact of the last few months and what the months ahead will mean for students, families, and educators, we know that the depth of students' connectedness to school and the quality of their relationships with adults and peers in school are critical to learning and thriving in life. State leaders can take action now and through the 2020-21 school year and legislative sessions to advance policy solutions that develop, maintain, and strengthen the crucial connections and relationships that are necessary for healing and learning."
