District leaders can use our Staffing Tool to calculate the staffing that schools will need under different reopening scenarios and which models are most viable for different schools. This tool focuses on staffing for grades K-8, based on students’ opt-in levels and your desired in-person and remote staffing ratios; it does not include grades 9-12 where the factors for in-person/hybrid staffing and feasibility are more complex.
