Across the country, school and local leaders have reported steep declines in school enrollment and engagement since March 2020, with many students considered “missing” or “not contactable.” In response, the National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education, and Families has teamed up with the Institute for Educational Leadership’s Coalition for Community Schools to identify strategies and tactics that cities, schools, and partners can use to reengage middle- and high-school students who lost contact with their schools due to the pandemic.

The YEF Institute and the Coalition for Community Schools welcome submissions of additional resources, tools, and policies to include in the next edition of Resource Guide: Addressing Student Reengagement in the Time of COVID-19. Please send submissions to Gislene Tasayco,
