  • Adding links to a “COVID-19” Category 
    • We’ve seen a few districts add a COVID-19 category to their portals with resources for parents and students and links to the district comms about closures. These can be scoped by grades and user types, so the categories can include only relevant links depending on the audience

  • Announcements
    • Within those portals, the DOE can send announcements to students, teachers, and staff so they see the announcements in their portal.

  • Learning at Home Hub
    • Clever has created a resource page with articles for students, teachers, and parents on accessing Clever from home. We will be updating this landing page with remote learning resources, and you can access it anytime by going to: clever.com/learningathom
