The redesigned, easier-to-navigate NJSBA COVID-19 Resource Center provides access to essential information, guidance and resources to help school boards during the current health emergency. All developments concerning the impact of the pandemic on school district operations are posted immediately in the Resource Center at www.njsba.org/COVID-19.
Two new features include an FAQ based on results of a survey of NJSBA members and effective communication strategies for boards of education.
Technology and mental health resources are offered, along with suggestions to help students, families and teachers enhance online learning. Other sections provide links to federal and state guidance and executive orders. The Resource Center addresses how to operate a virtual board meeting in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and other statutes, while providing sample documents from the NJSBA School Policy Service.
