National Review: District Responses to COVID-19

This spring, 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 477 school districts across the country are currently planning for fall 2020, how they are planning for contingencies of COVID-19 spread, and how this varies based on district characteristics.

Our researchers are continuously tracking how districts are preparing for the start of the new year, 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.
