COVID Slide QuickSheet – March 24, 2021
Tracking National and State Discussions About Reopening Schools, Addressing Learning Loss, and the State of Education Following the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have seen educators, advocates, experts, and policymakers shift their projects and priorities. We have been tracking discussions about learning loss, plans for reopening schools, district and state decision-making regarding these plans, and the effect that widespread school closures will continue to have on educational equity.
The Collaborative has been intentional about communicating these conversations to our audiences and creating a space to foster actionable discussion as states and districts make plans to reopen schools for the 2020-21 school year.
In this spirit, we have created a new newsletter, the COVID Slide Quick Sheet, which launched in early June.
The COVID Slide Quick Sheet collects and shares news updates from the district, state, and national levels as all stakeholders continue to work on developing safe, innovative plans to resume schooling and address learning loss. The tone of the COVID Slide Quick Sheet is factual, not commentary—though we hope to amplify what states and districts are doing to best support students and advance equity, accountability, and transparency.

About the Collaborative for Student Success
At our core, we believe leaders at all levels have a role to play in ensuring success for K-12 students. From ensuring schools and teachers are equipped with the best materials to spotlighting the innovative and bold ways federal recovery dollars are being used to drive needed changes, the Collaborative for Student Success aims to inform and amplify policies making a difference for students and families.
To recover from the most disruptive event in the history of American public schools, states and districts are leveraging unprecedented resources to make sure classrooms are safe for learning, providing students and teachers with the high-quality instructional materials they deserve, and are rethinking how best to measure learning so supports are targeted where they’re needed most.
