Between spring 2020 and spring 2021, many Colorado children experienced changes in how they received their education due to COVID-19. In many districts, classes moved online at different points in the year, requiring Colorado households with school-aged children to alternate between in-person, remote, or hybrid learning. Preliminary data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey indicate that between 64 and 87% of Colorado’s households with children saw K-12 classes move online at some point during the time period, while 22 to 40% had classes canceled entirely. To learn more about the historic shifts to remote learning during the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
