Ed Tech Company Releases COVID-19 Training Videos

An education technology company that produces training has compiled a set of videos to help districts prepare for school reopenings. The 11-part COVID-19 safety package from EducationAdminWebAdvisor includes eight videos in English for:

  • Teachers (25 minutes long);
  • Administrators (28 minutes);
  • Nutrition and food service staff (18 minutes);
  • Custodial and maintenance people (14 minutes);
  • Bus drivers (10 minutes);
  • Parents (5 minutes); and
  • Students (7 minutes for grades K-5 and 10 minutes for grades 6-12).

The training for parents and students is also available in Spanish.

According to the company, 50 topics are covered, including self-health checks, disinfection protocols, bell schedules, ventilation and the use of screens and laptops. The instruction is provided by Michele Mathews, an authorized OSHA outreach trainer. The training can be made available via a school's learning management system.

Pricing is based on student enrollment, from 19 cents or less per student for larger districts to $1.63 at smaller schools. Those with more than 750 students can choose to edit the training, removing content and adding a welcome message and school logo. Those with fewer than 750 students can purchase an optional edit package for $249.

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issues new guidance, the company is updating training and providing new files to clients for no extra charge.

"CDC produces bulletins and PDFs but they are difficult for parents, teachers and students to follow," said Jon Davis, director of onboarding, in a statement. "This gets everyone on the same page, using the same vocabulary so schools can open as safely as possible."

More information is available on the EducationAdminWebAdvisor website.
