COVID-19: CDC Resources for K-12 Education Administrators

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have available on their website information on “Interim Guidance for Administrators of US K-12 Schools and Childcare Programs.” The CDC offers this information for administrators of public and private childcare programs and K-12 schools. Administrators are individuals who oversee the daily operations of childcare programs and K-12 schools, and may include positions like childcare program directors, school district superintendents, principals and assistant principals. The CDC indicates that the guidance is intended for administrators at both the school/facility and district level.

The information provided is intended to assist administrators in understanding how to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 among students, faculty and staff. The information is also intended to help schools react quickly should a case of the illness be identified.

The CDC indicates that they will update this guidance as needed and as additional information becomes available. Please check the CDC website periodically for updated interim guidance.
