Educators nationwide are preparing to welcome students and adults back to school to reunite, renew, and thrive. They face the layered impact of schools closures, the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic crisis, and racial inequities exacerbated by the pandemic and amplified by the nationwide mobilization for racial justice. To aid in this transition, CASEL collaborated with more than 40 partners to illuminate a way forward, centered on relationships and built on the existing strengths of a school community.
