In an AASA survey, some district leaders also report plans to bridge equity gaps by distributing Wi-Fi hotspots or working with providers on service affordability.

The survey was launched on March 20 through March 25, 2020, on K-12 insights survey platform, to detail the fiscal impact of COVID-19 on our nation’s public school system and answer how ed-technology is supporting or impeding districts’ abilities to deliver curriculum and instruction.

While the study was not experimental and did not employ random sampling, the survey garnered a total of 1,608 responses from a sample of AASA members from 48 states, which consisted of superintendents, associate superintendents, aspiring superintendents and other school system leaders.

The report represents the first of a series of studies that AASA will release about the impact of COVID-19 on school districts and only speaks to the preliminary effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on district operations.
