The U.S. Department of Education, State of California, and San Mateo County Office of Education are continuously releasing guidance to help child care centers, preschools, schools, districts, and other local education agencies adjust to the at-home/distance learning model.

Resources for Educators

The San Mateo County Office of Education has pulled together this page of resources and guidance to help you transition to at-home/distance learning. We share guidance from the State, materials we have created or curated to help you plan and deliver high-quality distance education, tips, best practices, and information to help you take care of yourself and support your students' mental health needs.
