The focus of this study centered around superintendent’s responses to the emergency remote learning period caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Forms of remote learning have been around since the 1700s, albeit, in many different forms. Technological advances of the 21st Century have significantly increased the ability of schools to provide instruction to students not on campus. Results of this study identified two elements, reception of instruction, and delivery of instruction, as critical components to superintendents leading a district in relation to remote learning.
