NCCEP's Compiled Resources: With the COVID-19 outbreak bearing down on communities nationally and globally, like you, we at NCCEP are arriving at each day with profound uncertainty. While we hope for the best, we are also deeply aware that COVID-19 is likely to significantly impact everyday life, our institutions, and our society as a whole for an unknown period of time. In navigating the storm, let’s have each other’s backs. With increasing numbers of K-12 and higher education systems closing or moving online, we will all be seeking solutions to how we can continue to support our students and families. Chances are none of us have all of the answers, but as we learn what does and does not work, let’s commit to sharing. Below is a list of online resources that we have compiled, with the help of our GEAR UP community. Please check back regularly, as we will be continuously updating this website as we discover other resources.
