COVID-19 K to 12: Managing Your School During a Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the closure of thousands of schools. Every school district will select one of three scenarios, based on county orders, state requirements, or district decisions:

  • Scenario 1 (Optimistic): Reopen and hope the pandemic has passed
  • Scenario 2 (Cautious): Continue the remote-schooling model for an additional few weeks
  • Scenario 3 (Conservative): Continue the remote-schooling model through the close of the 2019-20 school year

Regardless of which path you take, you can learn from the challenges and successes of schools across the country. With several weeks of data, the best strategies for how to handle educating during the pandemic will be more apparent.

You can use evidence from what worked to modify your activities for the months ahead or if the coronavirus reemerges in the 2020–21 school year, as CDC officials expect.
