Reopening Resources for School Leaders Reopening our buildings for hybrid learning is a tall task. Use these resources to focus your work as you prepare to welcome students back into your buildings this year.

Create or reignite an internal school reopening task force with two distinct branches: an operations team and an academic team. Use this planning template to drive the questions and thinking in each group and remain action oriented.

You don't need to have everything figured out to communicate. Get ahead by using these templates to clearly communicate what reopening will look like at your school using example communication documents for staff and families.

This checklist walks you through important questions to adjust your messaging to stakeholders.

For planning a sequence of communications, Illinois State University developed resources you can leverage to map out your communications with staff and families.

Use this printable visual support toolkit from Easterseals Chicago to safely guide students and staff as they return to buildings.
