Under the direction of the Illinois P-20 Council, a workgroup was developed and facilitated by Education Systems Center to study the impact and best practices related to the range of learning environments in place in schools across Illinois as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. A Framework and Resources for Measuring Student Needs and Development During Remote and Blended Learning has been published and is available for school districts and communities to consider. With the Pandemic continuing for the foreseeable future, school districts can utilize this resource for planning for the coming months.November 2020
