Hi there,

We ache for all the district and school leaders across the country who are grappling with tragedy wrought in their communities by the coronavirus. We know that right now, many leaders are focused rightly on making sure their communities are safe and cared for and aren’t yet in a place to focus on the future.

At ERS, because we’re not on the front lines in communities each day, we’ve been able to gather thinking from district leaders across the country to help districts – when you’re ready – start to understand some of the shorter- and longer-term questions and approaches to running a school system in the time of COVID-19.

Please be in touch with ERS for support as your district navigates the impacts of COVID-19. We will do our best to find resources from other districts or our own learnings, and we will use any questions we field to inform future resources we will be creating for the field. You can get in touch with us by sending a note to, which we monitor daily.
