LACOE School Re-opening Framework
School Reopening Framework: The Los Angeles County Superintendents Task Force for the 2020-21 School Year was organized by the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) under the leadership of Superintendent Debra Duardo, and involved superintendents and education leaders from across the county’s 80 school districts. Its objective was to develop a framework based on current assumptions and conditions to assist Local Education Agencies (districts, charter schools, county offices of education) with planning for the 2020-21 school year in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The framework includes planning resources and a set of considerations for districts and schools to take into account in five primary focus areas: Instruction, Health and Safety, Social-Emotional Support Systems, Family and Community Engagement and Operations. It was developed in coordination with local partners and informed by guidelines from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the California Department of Education.
Strategic Communications Guide: This guide was developed by the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) to ensure high-quality, consistent, two-way communication with stakeholders through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The guide was designed to help Local Education Agencies (districts, charter schools, county offices of education) communicate, engagement stakeholders and tap into community expertise. It is organized in three main sections: Communications and Engagement Strategies, Reusable Tools and Templates and Additional Resources from LACOE and Others. The guide also includes call outs with an “Equity Lens” to prompt users to engage in two-way communications with all stakeholders.
