At Brooklyn LAB, we’re developing visual language to help clarify components of the back-to-school process, and are working to ensure that we communicate our plans and expectations clearly to all. Our goal is to present our thinking and information in a way that helps our community engage, weigh in, and ultimately help hold us and each other accountable.
The COVID-19 K12 Equitable Response Open Iconography Library is a set of icons that relate to safety in schools and to strategies to support academic and social-emotional learning in the COVID-19 era. The resources in this document can be used to communicate plans and protocols, for signage, and to facilitate the planning process by helping you distill and represent your thinking in a way that others can access and respond to.
We are sharing these icons to encourage their broader use and to advance a conversation about school safety by introducing important questions, proposing potential solutions, and defining the new concepts we need to discuss, roll out, and improve. It’s our hope that they will serve as a resource for schools who are trying to make their planning process more open and accessible.
