Restoring Hope and Seizing Opportunity in the Face of Crisis: State Guidance for Building Resilient and Equitable Education SystemsRestoring Hope and Seizing Opportunity in the Face of Crisis: State Guidance for Building Resilient and Equitable Education Systems was created in response to COVID-19’s disruption to help guide education policymakers and stakeholders in taking action to create resilient and equitable education systems.

This guidance provides education stakeholders with important considerations for this calendar year and beyond on how to advance personalized, competency-based systems that empower students to master rigorous learning pathways regardless of time or place. Together we can ensure that the return to school is not about what was lost, but instead about the insights leveraged to create the systems and structures needed for the future success of every student.

In the guidance, we recommend short- and long-term actions for building resilient and equitable education systems, focusing on four categories:

  • Student support systems
  • Human capital and infrastructure
  • Evidence of learning
  • System accountability
