From TeachtheVote.org: ATPE’s Timeline of COVID-19 in Texas and Our Association’s Response
ATPE has launched a new timeline
allowing website visitors to visualize the growth of the COVID-19 pandemic in Texas, related governmental developments, and our association’s response to the crisis.
The project includes links to news articles and blog posts here on Teach the Vote in chronological order, dating back to the state’s initial response on March 2 of this year. That’s when cities and counties began issuing local disaster declarations amid reports of the first in-state cases of the new coronavirus.
The timeline highlights actions by local, state, and federal government and extends up to the current month. Events noted on the timeline include executive orders signed by Gov. Greg Abbott (R), actions by Trump administration officials, Texas Education Agency (TEA) guidance, and responses by the education community. The timeline also highlights actions taken by ATPE to help educators deal with the challenges of COVID-19, which we will continue to update.
ATPE is working to provide educators with tools for dealing with the pandemic, including our comprehensive COVID-19 FAQs and Resources. View ATPE’s full COVID-19 timeline here.
