EENC Releases eeGuidance for Reopening Schools in North Carolina

EENC today released eeGuidance for Reopening Schools, a new publication which offers support for schools and districts as they find ways to safely reopen their schools to students this fall. Developed in collaboration with the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), the guidance offers dozens of specific strategies for schools and districts, including using the school grounds for outdoor classroom spaces as a strategy for adhering to physical distancing guidelines, engaging community environmental and outdoor education programs as alternative spaces for learning, tapping into the expertise of environmental educators to support teaching and learning, creating healthier learning environments and supporting at-home learning.

While we are all eagerly waiting to hear if schools with open with their A, B, or C plans, it is critical that we connect formal and nonformal educators across the state to support student learning.
