Social Media Toolkit and Event Email Template
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a tremendous toll on America’s schools, families, educators, and students. But with increased access to vaccinations, proven virus prevention, and unprecedented resources from the American Rescue Plan, America’s schools are steadily reopening for in-person learning.
As we start the 2021-2022 school year, we have to reimagine education in the post-COVID-19 world and find new ways to address gaps that were exacerbated by the pandemic, listen to student and parent concerns, and respond to needs. That’s why the Biden Administration has developed a Return to School Roadmap. This roadmap is a resource to help everyone safely return to school in the fall.
We need your help to amplify these efforts and share the resources that schools, parents, educators, and communities have available to them. Below are social media resources that can help do just that. We encourage you to use these to help spread the message with the goal of making sure every student has the support and opportunities they need to heal, learn, and grow in their classrooms this fall.
