While almost all K-12 school districts returned to in-person learning in fall 2021, the impact of remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic has represented a tipping point for the use of technology in teaching and learning. Nearly three-quarters of school districts plan to offer a combination of online, hybrid or HyFlex courses (an approach that allows students to shift between in-person and remote learning on a course-by-course basis, based on their learning needs and other life factors), according to a Center for Digital Education (CDE) survey, and unprecedented funding and close alignment with community priorities offer schools and districts meaningful ways to accelerate these efforts. This report draws from survey data to identify K-12 school and district readiness to continue implementing these new models of learning, the technology needed to make this learning possible and points of alignment that can help support these efforts.
