Aug 18 -- The Current Population Survey, School Enrollment Supplement provides information on the population 3 years old and older on school enrollment, junior or regular college attendance, and high school graduation. The Census Bureau requests OMB approval to add seven questions to the School Enrollment Supplement in October 2020 and invites the public to comment to OMB by September 17, 2020. The added questions will assist researchers to understand how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic affected schooling at an individual child level, such as:

How children received instruction in a distance-format, if at all;
how much digital and internet access children had, if at all;
how much live interaction children had with teachers, if at all; and
how much time was spent on distance learning.
