The groups met for a week - some groups met informally for an exchange of ideas, while others met daily and worked on every question in the template. These small groups allowed participants to really delve into the minutiae of a reopening plan with like-minded educators.
We know that “reopening” is a work in progress, and the template is still available for anyone to use! It is linked on the MSLA website: https://www.maschoolibraries.org/reopening-plan.html. There is also a “Reopening Plan Repository” if you’d like to see some examples or reopening plans - thank you to members who agreed to share their plans!
Wherever you are in your reopening process, good luck in this strangest of years!
