Report of Initial Findings: COVID Impact on Public Schools

Earlier this month, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the nation and forcing the shutdown and response of school districts nation-wide, AASA launched a nation-wide survey of superintendents to gather real time data on how schools are responding, the information and resources they are relying on and still need, and to begin to understand what the long-term policy implications for state and federal policy makers will be as they consider how to best support school districts.  As an indication of the relevancy of this report, our survey garnered more than 1,600 responses from 48 states during the week of March 13 to March 25. The initial findings are summarized here.
