The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a dramatic shift to online learning for K-12 public schools, requiring school districts to address inequities that were illuminated in the remote learning model. This poster summarizes a multi-year research project. Study 1 (2020), a mixed-method survey distributed to District Technology Directors, focused on how school districts responded to the technology needs of students and families while in hybrid and distance learning models. Study 2 (2022), a focus group comprised of District Technology Directors, examined the practices implemented during remote learning that were sustained as the pandemic waned. The Equitable Technology Infrastructure Model highlights the research findings that the pandemic was an opportunity to reimagine schools for the success of all students through an infrastructure that includes effective instruction, school-home partnerships, and law and policy development.
