    Can anyone share their districts'/states' guidance related to the use of hardware when/if schools re-open, post COVID-19? Looking specifically for scenarios where students do not each have their own device. I'm seeking any existing protocols, guidance or recommendations related to device distribution, sanitizing, etc. I have seen the CDC guidelines, but would prefer to see models of what education agencies are planning to implement in the event schools re-open fully or partially next school year.  Thanks in advance for any insight you may offer. ​

    Hi Jennifer!
    I've been writing a lot of content at digitalbridgek12.org related to devices, and guidance for school districts for managing device lending programs, particularly if they are new to the process. Happy to talk offline as well. My contact below! Would be good to catch up!

    Thanks, Simon!

    @Jeff Mao Thanks for sharing your resources! Awesome! Have you come across any guidance for covid sanitation for devices that are shared?  Like a 3D printer, laser printer, etc.?  People are starting to look for examples that help them design policies that will fit for their situations.

    Thanks!​
