As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to require social distancing and remote learning—a reality that could extend into the start of the new school year in many states—districts and schools can do a lot to support parents and families in their roles as co-educators to help children continue learning and cope with prolonged disruption to their academic and social lives. Four experts will discuss with you, the Education Week reader, what schools can do to support families: from leveraging community partners, to providing necessities such as food and internet access, to helping teachers engage with parents and families in especially challenging circumstances such as homelessness, unemployment, and illness.
