Education has been greatly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Learning in a hybrid and/or virtual environment has created new pressures for parents/caregivers and has required them to serve in a different role. Keeping students engaged and excited is difficult and parents may not know where to go for assistance and resources.

OSEF wants to help. Oakland Schools has created a comprehensive resource for parents and caregivers to help them easily locate support in a number of areas including Fostering Well Being, Nurturing Skills for School and Life and Engaging in Academics. We hope that you will find this resource helpful as you navigate this unusual learning environment: Supporting Learning at Home: a Guide for Parents and Other Providers of Care

To get started, we recommend first focusing on the following resources in the guide, and then move on to other information based on your family’s needs.
