This brief, aimed at state and district policymakers, elevates considerations for evidence-based strategies and innovative approaches to support teachers and teacher candidates during and following the COVID-19 crisis. We identify how CARES Act funding can be used to accelerate the development and provision of systems of support for teacher candidates and novice teachers. For each of the considerations, we cite research or examples from other states and districts that can be helpful to learn more and guide decision-making. Finally, throughout the document, we provide references and links to resources that may be helpful to prepare and support teachers through and beyond this crisis, and a list of these resources is included in a table at the end of the document.
