ABSTRACT

Reopening K-12 Schools During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Prioritizing Health, Equity, and Communities (2020)   [open html - 0B]

From the Website Description: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to the nation's K-12 [kindergarten-twelfth grade] education system. The rush to slow the spread of the virus led to closures of schools across the country, with little time to ensure continuity of instruction or to create a framework for deciding when and how to reopen schools. States, districts, and schools are now grappling with the complex and high-stakes questions of whether to reopen school buildings and how to operate them safely if they do reopen. These decisions need to be informed by the most up-to-date evidence about the SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] virus that causes COVID-19; about the impacts of school closures on students and families; and about the complexities of operating school buildings as the pandemic persists."
