We Must Close the Gap Between Research and Policy in School Systems' Responses to COVID-19

District Responses to COVID-19 School Closures

Researchers at CRPE have compiled a database, including an interactive map, to track how districts shift instruction, student support, and organizational operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 100,000 public schools across the country have closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are expected to remain closed for weeks, and in some cases, for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

States, districts, and charter school management organizations face hard and quick decisions about how to manage these closures. This project attempts to provide transparency so decision-makers can find solutions as quickly as possible.

We will update this database continuously, and will keep adding districts and metrics studied.
