Coronavirus: Educational Resources

Update: April 2, 2020

Parents are maintaining regular contact with their child’s school regarding any specific distance learning resources or requirements.  While library branches are closed, you might wish to use digital tools offered by the Fulton County Library SystemDeKalb County Public Library, and Clayton County Library System.

Additional federal, state, and local resources are available to help your children learn while coronavirus keeps them from the classroom:

Update: March 22, 2020

While many schools have temporarily closed their doors, tools are available to assist parents with educating their children from home. However, each school or school district fosters its own program on how to adjust to the current pandemic. I recommend contacting your relevant institution for best practices. Talking to children about Coronavirus may be difficult but the CDC has provided an online resource to help parents and those working with children approach the subject. PBS has also provided tips on how to approach the topic.

Although changes have been made in how our students are learning, civil rights must still be protected. The Department of Education has released a fact sheet and webinar to serve as guidance for protecting the civil rights of students with disabilities for schools using online learning tools during the COVID-19 outbreak. Additional resources for schools and school personnel may be found on the Department of Education’s website.

In addition, there are nationwide resources available for distance learning provided by PBS and the Smithsonian.
