As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the U.S. Department of Education has released dedicated resources that will help schools navigate the coming weeks and months specific to topics such as special education and student privacy:
- Q&A: Protecting student privacy
- Ensuring students with disabilities continue to receive education services
- Possible relaxation of mandated testing policies under the Elementary and Secondary Education ACT (ESEA)
- CDC guidance for school settings, including school closure decision guidance
While the spread of the coronavirus will differ from school district to school district, please contact any member of the Barley Snyder Education Practice Group if you have any questions on these new resources or anything COVID-19 related.
