CHART: School Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic (Version 01)

It has been illuminating to listen to school leaders share how their systems are responding to the needs of their students, staff, and communities during the global pandemic. I need to summarize more concretely some of the key leadership behaviors and support structures that I have heard about in the Coronavirus Chronicles interviews, but in the meantime I thought I would share the following chart.

I don’t claim that this chart is definitive or based on a scholarly analysis of data. Instead, it is just a quick summary of my informal meaning-making so far. This chart is definitely a draft. If you have thoughts about how I should change it, let me know!
