The current public health situation has raised many questions about best instructional practices for remote learning. Although we do not have state or citywide guidelines for what distance learning should look like, especially with respect to students with IEPs, we have created a webpage with resources that schools and educators might find helpful.
Our COVID-19 Resource Center provides up-to-date communications and important documents, including educational resources and information related to multilingual learners/English language learners and students with disabilities, that may be beneficial to schools in order to best serve students.
Even those schools with extensive plans remind us that those plans are merely a starting point. They all intend to monitor every aspect of their distance learning programs looking for ways to make them more robust, more engaging, more readily accessible to all families, and more community-oriented. We are continuously updating these resources and are committed to keeping our school partners informed about the latest innovations for remote learning.
