TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES AND SUPPORT
K12itc, a KASB Prestigious Partner and leader in providing technology solutions for school districts, compiled a list of resources and services that may be of use to school districts implementing remote learning. Many of the resources are free.
When communicating with employees, students and families about Coronavirus, here are a few helpful key messages and tips to keep in mind:
- The priority is the health and safety of students and employees.
- Schools work closely with public health officials and rely heavily on their guidance because they are the experts.
- Local and state health departments are the best resources for current information about Coronavirus.
- Emphasize what is known at the time of the communication.
- Include the date/time in all communications, including social media posts, because information can change quickly.
- Include best hygiene practices in communications.
- Create a web page that can be easily updated to links with the most current information from reliable sources, including the local and state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control.
- The best way to combat rumors and speculation is easy access to reliable information.
