This toolkit is for USAID Mission staff and their partner national and local education officials, implementing partners, and administrators and educators of education institutions. It helps education planners plan and make key decisions on the return to learning during and after education disruptions caused by crises, such as COVID-19, in a way that is equitable, inclusive, and builds the resilience of education systems. To provide timely support to the field, this toolkit includes a first set of tools and identifies several tools that are forthcoming. The toolkit is expected to be updated with the full set of tools in late 2020.
