Mission

Learning in Washington, DC has been upended by the District's response to COVID-19. Inperson learning has been suspended in DC since March 16, from early childhood education through public libraries and private universities. This period has exposed both opportunities and significant challenges and inequities.

Focus

The Committee will work across sectors to recommend strategies to close the digital divide, improve distance learning strategies, re-imagine physical learning environments, evaluate phased entry for summer learning and next school year, as well as identify new tools or resources needed for reopening all aspects of education in Washington, DC. It will consider what components of distance learning from this experience may be worth preserving in the future.

Including, but not limited to:

  • Primary and Secondary Education
  • Colleges &Universities
  • Childcare Centers
  • Pre-schools and Day Care Facilities
  • Summer & Overnight Programs
  • Libraries
  • School Sports
  • After-School Activities
