As of press time, Minnesota schools were closing to students so educators could plan for distance learning in case a longer building closure is needed, in response to COVID-19.

Education Minnesota is working to support its members, as well as Minnesota students during this time.

For resources on planning distance learning, professional development opportunities for educators, and updates on things happening at the Legislature relating to COVID-19 closures and its effect on working educators, go to www.educationminnesota.org/resources/in-the-classroom/coronavirus.

This site will also include any updated guidance from the Minnesota Department of Education on distance learning schedules and implementation, assessments, the delivery of nutrition, mental health and special education services and more.

Please contact your local president or field staff if you have any questions about your contract and how this situation affects your working conditions, pay or leaves.
