  • School Reopening Information (updated 7.28.20)
  • The Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network to Advance Care for Children with Medical Complexity (CMC CoIIN; PI: Meg Comeau) has partnered with the AAP to offer the CMC & COVID-19 ECHO project, during which we have covered the topic of school re-entry for CMC, and wanted to share the resources and key takeaways we’ve gathered through these conversations.
  • The lecture on this topic, presented by Nathaniel Beers MD, MPA, FAAP and Stephanie Porter MSN, RN, highlighted the AAP’s guidelines for re-opening schools (including physical distancing guidelines, PPE and face coverings, cleaning, and screening/testing), mental health needs of students, specific guidelines for CMC (such as medical technology), and lessons learned from the past that could assist this transition. Please access the recording and slides of the lecture for additional details.
  • Key resources discussed during the ECHO that relate to the conversation on this group include:
  • Information from the AAP re: School Re-Opening

§ *Much of this is covered in the ECHO lecture

This is not an exhaustive list of resources discussed during the ECHO; additional links to resources can be found in the School Re-Entry topic folder.

For additional information about the ECHO, slides and resources from all sessions can be found on our website
