On today’s episode, we’re joined by Sarah Rand, the Communications Lead for the National Survey of Public Education’s Response to COVID-19 project at the American Institutes for Research(AIR). She shared about AIR’s national survey that was administered in the summer of 2020, in which over 800 school district and CMO leaders completed. The survey was about school closures, including the timing of school closures due to COVID-19; distance learning approaches and challenges; supporting students with disabilities and English learners; district policies and requirements, such as grading and graduation; staffing and human resources; and health, well-being, and safety. Sarah also outlines some of the most crucial findings and how schools can create action items to promote better learning opportunities for all students.
