Health and Safety Updates

Updated as of January 13, 2021

As concerns around Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue, Teachstone® is committed to communicating proactively and transparently with our clients and partners in the field.

We are taking steps to support safe environments for our clients and the children they serve by creating alternative ways to provide training and professional development. We will keep this page updated with our most recent updates and developing plans.

How Teachstone Is Approaching COVID-19

  • The safety of our team, our clients, and the children they serve is our top priority.
  • We are partnering with clients to work through these extenuating circumstances together.
  • We are taking preventive measures to help ensure a safe environment and to reduce the spread of this virus around the education community we belong to.
  • We will continue to review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidance daily and will make decisions based on trusted information.

Face-to-Face Trainings

We are not currently offering face to face trainings. All standard trainings will remain virtual until the CDC indicates that such gatherings may resume and we, as a company, are confident in our preparedness to deliver trainings safely. Our fully-facilitated virtual training options will allow you to continue your CLASS work, despite social distancing and travel limitations.

See all scheduled trainings.

Virtual Trainings

Any of our standard face-to-face trainings are now offered in a fully virtual format. These new training opportunities are:

  • Convenient – Staff can complete training from the comfort and safety of home or work.
  • Affordable – Virtual delivery is discounted and there are no expenses for travel or meals.
  • Facilitated – Every virtual training is facilitated by a Teachstone CLASS trainer.
  • Reliable – A tech support team member will ensure a seamless experience.
  • Flexible – Training time and breaks can all be customized to meet your needs.

Keep remote teams connected while offering them the opportunity to get CLASS certified or take their skills to the next level. Learn more here.

Online Options 

Our online trainings offer programs the opportunity to improve teacher-student interactions, even if in-person trainings become infeasible. The myTeachstone® platform also houses hundreds of CLASS exemplar videos and in-depth resources that can be assigned to teachers for targeted professional development. In addition, we can offer smaller group trainings for your organization.

Minimizing the Spread of COVID-19

Health officials are urging the use of personal best practices that are standard for a typical flu season:

  • Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue.
  • Consult with a doctor before traveling when sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds—especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

We know this is a stressful time. We’re here to support you in any way we can. If you have questions, please contact our Customer Support team at https://teachstone.com/support/.

Thank you for your partnership as we navigate this evolving situation.
