Tracking District Actions

CRPE compiles a database of pandemic-related plans from 100 large and urban districts that serve nearly 10 million students.

We update this database regularly using publicly available information from district websites, board meeting records, and media reports. We strive to provide accurate information, but we realize district plans are prone to shifts that may not be immediately reflected here. If you have questions, or see information in our database that needs updating, please email us at


Fall 2020: The State of School Reopening

What we’ve learned from eight months of analysis of school systems’ responses to the pandemic.

Promising Practices

As districts prepared for the 2020-21 school year, many described plans to support students, families, and staff in new ways. This document is a dynamic tool designed to describe some of these promising practices and provide links to publicly available artifacts.

CRPE’s review includes 106 districts across 50 states, most located in urban centers. We have also included promising practices identified by a national panel convened in partnership with the Collaborative for Student Success. How plans are put into practice and what lessons emerge remain to be seen.
