COVID-19 Response: Invisible Problems

Back to School - Family Support

Tell Us About a Problem :

School district plans for back to school can be very complex and will change as situations develop in our communities. Support is needed for families who do not speak English as a first language, to ensure they can read plans and ask questions in their native language. Especially those who have school-aged children can experience significant challenges in working during the day when school plans include hybrid or distance learning from home. While districts may provide Personal Learning Devices for children, free internet services that were offered in the early months of the pandemic may no longer be offered for families who need additional support. The list seems endless but these are a few needs that have come to light as plans are being announced in our community.
