Bree Dusseault is quoted in Education Week on school districts' plans for the summer amid COVID-19.
Four months into COVID-19, and just weeks out from the new school year, very few districts in our database report concrete expectations for the 2020-21 school year.
Gaps in spring and summer planning can point districts to the critical issues they must attend to in the coming school year.
Summer offers an opportunity for districts to begin addressing learning gaps that emerged this spring, as well as other needs—like social interaction and special education services—that were unmet while school buildings were closed.
Nearly two months into our nationwide tracking effort, most of the 82 school districts we reviewed provide some form of instruction.
Assuming districts’ attention will soon turn to commencement celebrations, summer learning, and fall contingency planning, it is not clear how much more progress will be made on remote learning this school year.
