Talking with children about COVID-19: Messages for parents, school staff, and others working with children
Considering how COVID-19 may impact the upcoming school year, members of the Region 7 Comprehensive Center (R7CC) Advisory Board requested information about best practices on distance and blended learning.
In response to this inquiry, this Fast Response provides a summary of guidance on what four states are providing for distance and blended learning. The states included in the brief are Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Oregon. These states represent a broad cross-section of contexts with important features common among the Region 7 states, including large urban centers, rural districts, and similar student demographics.
