As shared by Emily O’Brien, Eastplain Elementary School
In response to the rapid shift to remote learning, ClassLink created several tools and resources. Among the tools are two rubrics to help organizations (districts and state) self-assess their readiness for remote learning and returning back to school for the 2020-21 school year.
· Education Continuity Plan Rubric for remote learning
What’s the vision for it?
We want these rubrics to exist in the public domain as living documents. We encourage you to adapt these resources to serve your district/state’s needs. We welcome feedback to continuously improve the rubrics and we encourage professional leadership associations (e.g. COSN, SETDA, AESA, and AASA) to adopt and contribute to the improvement of these resources.”
