To our SABES community: We look forward to seeing you in person again soon! However, in the meantime, while we are all social distancing, we will be postponing our face-to-face sessions or holding them virtually. Check the calendar for updates, and look for announcements from us about courses you have registered for.
Updated 3/28: SABES has compiled resources for you on supporting and connecting with your students. These include tech tools for advising and coaching remotely, resources for COVID-19 for ESOL instructors, the next Rethinking Fractions webinar on helping students develop a foundational number sense around fractions, SABES Program Support PD Center Updates, and a reflection on balance and expectations for yourselves and your students.
Find Emergency Resources for every area of Massachusetts, covering categories of need including assistance for unemployment, sick leave, small businesses and nonprofits, child care programs and meals for kids, and much more. For information about the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) itself, with links to announcements from the state and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), check out our resource by the ELA PD Center: Getting the Gist.
We hope that you and yours are healthy and safe.
