Preparing for the 2020-2021 School Year

As the world continues to adjust to the impact that COVID-19 has had on all aspects of our daily lives, schools are making plans for next year. In this challenging time, no one can be fully sure when students will return, but most are certain it will not be until the start of the 2020-2021 academic year if not a bit later. In order to best be prepared for a healthy and safe return to school, there are a few things that schools will need.

  1. Distance Learning Solutions

With the potential for a second wave and many schools restructuring their plans around remote learning, it is no surprise that decision makers will be prioritizing distance learning tools in their budgets. Whether schools are looking to upgrade the services they implemented with a free trial or looking for ways to fill potential gaps in their plans, DSC and our vendor partners are here to help. Check out our blog for more information around distance learning solutions.

  1. Classroom Solutions

Schools will eventually return to the classroom. As they transition back to a more traditional learning set up, they will need tools and supplies to make the transition as smooth as possible for students and staff. Whether it is a mobile charging solution to store their new devices, cleaning supplies and antimicrobial products, or tools and technologies that will take their curriculum to the next level, districts will need classroom solutions.

  1. Support

After a widespread crisis like COVID-19 schools and our communities will need support, patience, and understanding as we continue to navigate through the impacts and implications of a global pandemic. Something as simple as recommending helpful resources or services that can assist educators and students as they adjust can make a huge impact.
