The public health crisis resulting from COVID-19 has caused schools and districts to rapidly shift to a distance learning environment while also attending to necessary services and operations that cannot be handled virtually. Shifting to distance learning requires infrastructure changes, new methods of teaching and learning, and adaptations to lesson delivery, assessment, collaboration, and family engagement. Furthermore, this transition has highlighted tremendous equity gaps, including wide disparities in students’ access to necessary resources, including food, housing, digital devices, and the internet.
