For the latest information on the response to the Coronavirus in the state of California, please visit the California Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response page.

The current crisis caused by the Coronavirus affect us all statewide, nationwide, and globally. These dark and uncertain times remind us of the importance of collective work and advocacy.

This crisis hits at a time when California already needs to do much more, much faster to achieve educational justice. As an education equity organization, Ed Trust–West recognizes that California’s most vulnerable students are at particular risk while schools and colleges are closed.

So while school and college leaders, teachers, students, parents, and families continue adjusting plans and responses to the Coronavirus, Ed Trust–West will update this page with useful resources and information that keep equity at the forefront.
