Operations Planning Toolkit

The SLAM Education Studio has developed the Operations Planning Toolkit for Safe-Distance Learning, a comprehensive, complimentary resource to assist public and private schools throughout the country in taking the first steps in their return-to-school process. The toolkit is designed to help schools determine each building’s capacity when implementing ‘safe-distanced’ learning, as well as other critical concerns including school arrival and access, health services, critical services for community use of school facilities, and more.
