School administrators, principals, and other stakeholders will now consider building a more resilient learning and assessment system following the impacts of COVID-19. Building a system suited to supporting decision-making, including resource allocation, will help your school handle future shocks and succeed in the classroom learning recovery process.

Student Examination and Certification

Adjusting high-stake examinations that are used for the certification of students as they proceed to the next level of education is one of the critical areas that you will need to address. As schools reopen for classroom learning, a large-scale assessment system is needed to address the new challenges in examination and certification caused by the pandemic.

Hybrid Online/Classroom Learning System

Adopting a hybrid model of learning is one way you can keep social distance and minimize the spread of the virus. Some students can learn from home, while others can participate in classroom learning in small numbers. Make sure that the groups of students do not mix as they attend their classes.

Regular Cleaning 

Maintaining a clean environment is critical to learning in a safe environment. You will need to ensure that frequently-touched surfaces like door handles, sinks, and playground equipment are regularly cleaned. Also, classrooms will need regular cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces. 

Upgrading of the school ventilation like the HVAC system improves air circulation. You will need to remind students participating in classroom learning to carry supplies like masks, sanitizers, and wipes to improve hygiene standards and not to share objects. You can also have extra masks and hand sanitizers in school.

Making adequate preparations to ensure that students learn in a safe environment will require a concerted effort from all stakeholders. Learning in a healthy space gives every student the peace of mind they need to excel in their studies.
