School Closure Services Data by State: March 2020 - June 2020

The following one page briefs were created to provide an overview of the data that was generated from our review of 7,142 documents collected from district websites between June and July 2020 across both Maine and Pennsylvania. We reviewed the services provided by districts using 56 categories to capture variation by district characteristics. In this set of reports, we explore variation by urbanicity (city, suburban, town, rural), a key factor identified early on as a barrier to service provision in the wake of building closure due to COVID-19. Overall, we find within Maine, within Pennsylvania, and between these states, district-level communication patterns differed across geographical context. We discuss the implications of these findings within the reports for policy and practice.
