Coronavirus: what you should know

Help us put a face to the COVID-19 crisis by taking our emailing us your pictures.

Information and Resources

We’ve assembled resources for Texas educators, support professionals, and other school employees about the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. However, we really want to hear from you. If you have a specific experience you’d like to share about how you are helping your community cope with the pandemic, or would like to spotlight the good work your fellow members are doing in these challenging times, please email

TSTA members are on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis and deserve respect, and respect means a safe workplace and the ability to protect and take care of our families. See the document we’ve put together on our standards for safe schools and a flyer in both English and Spanish, and NEA’s guidance and member webinar on reopening school buildings.

This Q&A from TSTA’s Legal Division explains the Americans with Disabilities Act and when members with underlying illnesses may request reasonable accommodations under that Act. If, after reviewing this Q&A, you believe you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation, please contact the TSTA Help Center at 877-ASK-TSTA (877-275-8782).
