Restart and Recovery: Considerations for Teaching and Learning

Restart and Recovery: Considerations for Teaching and Learning

A publication from the Council of Chief State School Officers provides guidance for school and district leaders on planning, launching, and sustaining a curriculum that provides equitable high-quality education in the wake of COVID-related school closures. The report, Restart and Recovery: Considerations for Teaching and Learning (11 pages, PDF), outlines anticipated challenges under each of three scenarios: in-person learning, remote learning, and hybrid learning. Based on the principles of "people first," "design for feasibility," and "plan for change," the guide outlines considerations around three interrelated components: conditions for learning (e.g., school culture, climate, well-being, and connection), academics (e.g., curriculum and instruction, assessment, professional learning), and system conditions (e.g., engaging families and communities, organizing talent, designing schedules, planning for technology).
