This project will provide the opportunity to gain insights on the potential downstream impact of school modality (virtual, in person, hybrid) on vulnerable families. Results from this project will guide the development of resources for schools, parents, and their families to mitigate additional inequality that could arise from this crisis and preemptively address future needs that might arise with changes in the education system.

This project will provide the formative research to begin engaging, encouraging, and educating students, families, and school personnel to imagine new forms of equitable education for the future not only in Georgia but across the United States.
