We would love to imagine a world in which school districts never have to engage in crisis communications, but this past month, schools began re-opening for a new school year right as the Delta variant is surging in Mississippi. In some ways, we know just as little about how this school year will unfold as we did last year. Great communications help smooth the path for districts to focus on students, come what may.

We compiled some resources to help school districts navigate the 2021-2022 school year. We will continue to update as we learn about more tools and resources.
