Online Resources for Educators Working Remotely & Promoting At-Home Learning

Description:

In response to Alabama K-12 public schools closures, this document hopes to provide resources, tools, and guidance for supporting at-home learning for students, promoting learning activities for families to engage in, and provide independent learning opportunities for students. This document provides a type of online library of resources gathered by crowdsourcing ideas and links to provide to teachers, families, and students to promote at-home learning during the time of social distancing in the wake of COVID-19. Please take into consideration, students, teachers, and families should visit the websites of their school and public libraries for available resources that may be specific to the school, school system or community. Each school and public library will have varying resources, and therefore this document cannot be expected to be comprehensive, but at least a starting point for educators, students, and families.  This document should be considered a living document, meaning that it will be updated as needed and resources/information comes available.

Planning for Virtual/Distance School Counselling During an Emergency Shutdown

Description:

The rapid spread of COVID-19, commonly referred to as the coronavirus, has forced districts to review and in some cases implement emergency shutdown plans. Plans should outline comprehensive school counseling services that will be provided and address equity and access issues such as ensuring students have access to computers and internet. Depending on your district’s safety protocol, a school may want to appoint a multidisciplinary team to create plans so services can continue in the event of a shutdown. This team should include an administrator, school counselor, lead teachers, school social worker/psychologist and school nurse, plus other personnel deemed necessary.
