League Member Support during COVID19

COVID-19 League Supports

The Colorado League of Charter Schools is here to support charter schools in Colorado as we all deal with the impacts of the Coronavirus, schools working remotely, and the effects of the State’s “Stay at Home” order. The League is working to supply news and information, assess needs, convene school leaders and educators, and provide input and training to support schools, students, and families. See below for our major efforts.

 

The League's three short-term goals:

  1. Support our member schools and the charter school sector.

  2. Provide resources and assistance for school leaders and schools to succeed despite the uncertainty.

  3. Provide meaningful communication and access points for members and partners to connect and collaborate with League staff.

The League is working in conjunction with CDE SOC. and CSI to provide complimentary information and services for charter schools. Please make sure you are starting with information from your district/authorizer first, then referring to additional information from the League and partners.

Providing Students with Mild Disabilities Accommodations on Online Educational Platforms

Mar 30, 2020 04:00 – 05:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)

If our students can't access the content being provided online, we are not only increasing the gap between them and their general education peers but also likely adding stress and frustration to their and their parents' lives in this already challenging time.

Join this webinar to learn how to provide students access to content that they are viewing online through online tools, instructional planning, and strategic use of co-teachers and paraprofessionals.
