Learning Environment

During the 2020-21 school year students participated in learning in a variety of ways; some students learned remotely for the full year and others experienced a range of both in-person and remote learning. The environments in which students learned, the tools and resources schools used, and the needs of both teachers and students were unlike any other school year.

Explore the information below to learn more about how learning environments changed across DC throughout the school year.

Additionally, review data collected, and initiatives aimed at addressing Technology and device access for students and families.
