School District Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Round 6, Ending the Year of School Closures   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Key Points: "[1] This is the sixth report in the 'School District Responses to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2109] Pandemic' series, covering changes that occurred in public school districts between May 8 and May 29, 2020. [2] On average, schools canceled eight days of instructional time due to the pandemic, because of either an extended spring break, a shortened academic year, or a lag between closing buildings and starting remote learning. [3] One in five schools were in districts that offered rigorous remote instruction most closely resembling in-classroom learning, while two in five offered perfunctory instructional programs. [4] Forty-three percent of schools were in districts that planned for an in-person graduation ceremony--with 26 percent delaying the ceremony and 16 percent on schedule--and 28 percent of schools planned to conduct graduation ceremonies virtually."
