District and Charter Leaders Share Promising Strategies in the Wake of COVID-19

Early results from a nationwide survey of district and charter school network leaders highlight successful approaches used in schools this spring and a number of common concerns for the fall and beyond.

The results, published in a brief by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), include promising strategies for improving student access, fostering engagement, addressing socioemotional needs and supporting students with disabilities.

AIR Senior Researcher Dia Jackson discusses the brief and AIR’s research into other district and charter network responses in the wake of the pandemic, which will continue to be published throughout the 2020-21 school year.
