On January 20, the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse led an informational webinar on the latest COVID-19 guidance and resources for kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) schools.
The session featured guest speakers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network. Presenters provided an overview of COVID-19 guidance for K-12 schools and shared resources to address the mental health impact on students, parents, teachers, and school personnel.
The discussion featured additional school safety-related resources available through SchoolSafety.gov, as well as a Q&A session.
This webinar is part of the 2022 School Safety Webinar Series, a program hosted by the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse to address emerging risks and threats facing the K-12 school community. Held on a monthly basis, the webinar series covers a range of school safety topics, and provides information on the resources, tools, and best practices available to equip school leaders with a set of strategies in creating safer and more resilient school systems.
