Restart and Recovery – Considerations for Teaching and Learning: PreK to 3rd Grade

The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) just released a document, Restart and Recovery – Considerations for Teaching and Learning: PreK to 3rd Grade. This resource guide is intended for state and school system leaders to use as they implement reopening plans for young students during the 2020-21 school year. The changing circumstances of the pandemic call for shifts in teaching modes– from all in-person, to all remote learning, or a hybrid of the two. This document offers strategies and age-specific recommendations pertaining to young learners, including preschoolers, to inform decision-making processes as districts transition to different modes of teaching. The guidance is organized into three categories: 1) Systems Conditions, 2) Well-Being and Connections, and 3) Early Learning and Academics for Pre-K–3rd grade.
