School Reopening Readiness Guide
(Version 1.4 Updated on March 8, 2021)
Using This Guide
This guide is intended to provide information to support your operational planning. It can be used by the reopening committee/task force to develop a comprehensive plan and identify action steps under each principle and corresponding objective.
This guide is organized by health principles and corresponding objectives. With each objective, you will find concrete recommendations aligned to existing guidance and based on existing research and the emerging evidence base. Starting point tools and management-level planning questions, examples, suggestions, and references are also provided to help achieve the goals.

The progress tracker below will help you keep track as you prioritize each objective, identify the level of implementation, and track real-time progress. The color-coded status can be used to quickly assess school readiness and correspond to the status column on the spreadsheet. You can continually reassess and update your status and priorities on the spreadsheet as you move through your reopening process.
Note: The link below will create a copy of the tracker in Google Sheets, which you can then edit and save in your Google Drive and share with colleagues.
