How to Choose the Right Protective Barriers for Your School

Many districts’ back-to-school plans this year will include some form of in-person instruction, and school leaders carry the burden of creating learning environments where students can feel safe and engaged in learning. This means spacing out desks and finding ways to limit the transfer of germs, such as by placing desk barriers on student work surfaces. With a variety of options for desk barriers, it’s not easy to decide which one is best for your school environment.

That’s why we created this desk barrier comparison guide to help you choose the barriers that work best for each of your classrooms and learning spaces.
