COVID-19 had differential impacts related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in educational settings. For this research practice partnership, we are exploring perceptions of middle school teachers regarding COVID-related impacts and supports provided for school engagement of teachers and students. Our collaborative team is focused on developing strategies to re-engage teachers and students and promote a healthy school environment (funded by the American Insititute of Research, $5000, 2022-2023).
