As our PreK-12 clients plan for the fall 2020 semester, HMC is offering this Campus Reboot Guide to support flexible planning for re-opening, with easy-to-use tools that can be customized for schools and districts. 

As part of HMC’s ongoing research effort to better understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 and develop solutions for a safe return to PreK-12 schools, we consulted with clients from various school districts and county offices of education, conducted surveys with parents, and did a deep dive literature review on building design and infectious disease transmission/prevention. 

“The aim is not just to facilitate short-term COVID-19 solutions,” said President and CEO Brian Staton. “But to reinforce our momentum towards safe, resilient learning environments that enhance student success, wellness, and community well beyond this current crisis.” 

Given the constantly changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, evolving knowledge about the disease, and shifting directives from governmental agencies, it’s HMC’s hope that this guide offers some clarity for educators and parents of school children.

In addition to the Campus Reboot Guide, HMC is committed to sharing all of its research findings with the industry in a series of white papers that focus on five main areas of Technology, Adaptability and Flexibility, Regulatory/Budgetary/Institutional Impacts, Space Needs/Reduction and Restructuring, and Impact to Wellness/Mental Health as they relate to the PreK-12, Higher Education, Healthcare, and Civic markets.
