At the Time of the Survey
Our second survey was administered during the second quarter of Chicago Public Schools’ 2020-21 school year, roughly eight months into the school year and 15 months in the global COVID-19 pandemic. CPS conducted fully remote learning between April 2020 and February 2021. In April 2021, the district welcomed back roughly 90,000 students to a hybrid learning schedule.
The City of Chicago’s COVID-19 daily positivity rate ranged from 3.1% on May 17, 2021, to just 0.4% on June 21, 2021. COVID-19 vaccinations for anyone 12 years and up were widely available through City and private vaccination sites.
