How Public Schools are Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19: I Don’t Care

The global COVID-19 pandemic has initiated ripple effects across every global industry, and education is no exception.

Universities and public school districts around the U.S. are being proactive in addressing the impact of this viral outbreak, working to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on students, faculty and surrounding communities.

On this episode of I Don’t Care with Kevin Stevenson, Stevenson was joined by Keller ISD attorney Amanda Bigbee, who detailed how her district is handling everything from online learning, meal provision for students who rely on it and more.

To begin, Keller ISD shuttered for two weeks at the recommendation of Tarrant County health officials, leveraging the benefit of already being effectively closed for spring break to attempt to mitigate the potential spread of the virus.

In particular, Bigbee said communication is critical for public school systems like Keller ISD.

“We did not panic. … We started the emergency management plan, which we have in place,” Bigbee said. “We began the communication process to our families so they knew they wouldn’t be returning on Monday and started trying to move the wheels to figure out how we educate 36,000 kids with varying levels of needs online. It’s been nonstop since the morning of Friday, March 13.”
