EOS’ Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

Equal Opportunity Schools is reaching out to assure you that we are monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and are working to ensure we meet the needs of our partner districts, schools, and individuals as well as provide for the health and safety of our employees.

We realize this public health crisis has already been disruptive to your district schools and communities and wanted to share what we’re doing to support both our partners and employees in this time of crisis. Steps that we are taking, include:

  • Closing the Seattle office and transitioning all employees to work remotely, from their home. This ensures your districts and schools continue to receive ongoing support.
  • Instituting a no travel policy nationwide to protect everyone from potentially being exposed to COVID-19.
  • Postponing all in-person meetings including regularly scheduled school visits, Equity Leader Labs, regional convenings, and participation at conferences.
  • Ensuring our employees have access to the necessary solution platforms, required equipment, and supplies to continue interactions and engagements with you, our partners.

We recognize that we are operating in challenging times and thank you for your assistance, patience, and concern for all. We face this unique challenge together as one EOS family. Likewise, we encourage you to look into your communities for ways you might be of service to those who are most adversely affected by the virus and its impact on our society: particularly in the populations we aim to serve.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and provide regular communications as we receive updates. Above all, we wish for the health and safety of you, your colleagues, and your loved ones as we work through the COVID-19 challenge together. For questions and concerns, please contact us.
