Following Governor Northam's directive that all K-12 public schools in Virginia close between March 16 and March 27 in response to COVID-19, many school divisions are offering services through a variety of distance methods. These resources are meant to support teachers and administrators as they strive to meet the needs of all students during this time, regardless of location.
