School system leaders can draw lessons from small pandemic learning communities to better support their students’ well-being and learning.
In March 2020, more than 100,000 public schools across the country closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
CRPE has made it our priority to rapidly provide ideas and evidence on how to best serve students. Our latest analysis gives a snapshot of how 100 of the largest school districts across the country are currently planning for the new school year, whether they will require students and staff to wear masks or be vaccinated, and how they are planning for contingencies of COVID-19 spread.
Our researchers are continuously tracking how districts are addressing challenges amid the pandemic, including technology access, remote instruction, student support, and school operations. Through data collection and analysis, we’re working to help schools, districts, and states find solutions.
