Coronavirus Information for Schools

AWSA Events:

AWSA has and will continue to adjust our professional learning opportunities to fit members' needs during this health emergency.  You can find information on AWSA academies, conferences, and coaching in the Professional Learning Catalog or upcoming events page of the website.

AWSA Forums

AWSA, along with education leaders from around the state, will begin posting templates and plans for their schools and districts in the AWSA Member Forums. We encourage AWSA members to look over these plans, post their own, and/or ask any questions they may have. 

All AWSA members have access to the Member Forums. If you are having trouble joining or posting in any of our Forums, please contact our Communications and Technology Coordinator Jena Sebald at [email protected]

Communication Support/Templates 

The Donovan Group, which provides communication support to AWSA members, has created a webpage for information and guidance on how you can best communicate with parents, staff, students, and community members including great communication templates. 

They have also created the Communication Plan for Reopening Schools. The plan includes a month by month roadmap of recommended communication tactics and a wealth of templates for your use. This brief video provides an overview of how to take advantage of the resources in this new resource.

This page will continue to be updated as more information becomes available regarding confirmed U.S. cases of coronavirus. If you have any further questions we encourage you to contact the Donovan Group at 414-409-7225 or at [email protected].


The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the Department of Health Services (DHS) COVID-19 Response Team (CRT) invite you to a joint webinar for local public health and school stakeholders on Thursday, April 29, from 5-6 p.m. This webinar is an opportunity to hear State experts provide updates on the implications of COVID-19 and review current guidance for schools.
