Coronavirus School Closure Study

Is your child’s school closed due to coronavirus?

I want to talk to you!

I’m conducting a study about how parents are responding to their children’s schools closing due to coronavirus/COVID-19. If you live in the United States and are a parent of at least one child in grades K-12 whose school is closed for at least two weeks, I want to interview you about your experiences. Interviews take place over the phone or via video conferencing, and take less than an hour.

I am especially interested in talking to parents who are low-income/hourly wage workers, who are continuing to work outside the home while school is closed, who have lost their jobs, and/or who do not have a college degree.

If you have questions, or would like to volunteer to be interviewed, please email me at kaverett (at)

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University at Albany, SUNY.
