As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak spreads throughout the United States and schools around the country are forced to close, district leaders are faced with a wide range of challenges, including how to transition to online teaching and learning, how to manage food distribution, how to find work for non-teacher employees during school closures, and of course, how to keep students and staff safe and healthy.
To support our school and district community, we’ve developed a series of online course videos for staff to help you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy and cope with the changes you may be dealing with during the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition, these new coronavirus resources are also being made available within the SafeSchools Staff Training System so that our school and district customers can easily distribute this important information to their staff. Look for the new courses in the Health category of your SafeSchools Training System. Or contact us for a free trial if you’re interested in purchasing these courses for your staff.
We recently recorded a webinar presentation with Dr. Scott Poland, veteran school psychologist, providing strategies for parents and caregivers to help their families and children cope with stress and anxiety during the coronavirus pandemic. Visit our Mental Health Tips for Children and Families page to learn more and view the recording.
With specialized course libraries for safety and compliance, special education, and transportation, we can help district leaders provide opportunities for continued professional development during school closures for all school staff, including paraeducators, bus drivers, and more, in one online system. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help.
