- Supporting Students’ Science Learning During COVID-19 School Closures: This support recognizes that solutions will not be – nor should be – “school as usual,” simply delivered in a virtual environment, nor will every solution meet every school and district need. Instead, this resource was developed by members of the Council of State Science Supervisors to provide guidance around how to support student science learning during these unique circumstances, to be used in conjunction with other state and district decisions.
- Temporary School Closure Online Learning Facebook Group: This group has developed rapidly as a result of COVID-19 school closures. Great place to start if you're looking for ideas! (All grade levels and content areas)
