With the rapid closures of schools following the COVID-19 pandemic, the dissemination of information was chaotic and, at times, unavailable. Additionally, as families began to understand the closures would continue through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, these same problems persisted.

- What policies and procedures have Colorado districts implemented to review student learning during the 2019-2020 school year?
- What policies and procedures have Colorado districts implemented to meet the needs of emerging multilingual students, students with disabilities, and students with social-emotional needs?
