Problem. School closures in Nevada due to the COVID-19 pandemic created an unprecedented chal- lenge to schools, districts, teachers, parents and students. The rapid switch to virtual teaching left many students unaccounted for and teachers unprepared for teaching virtually. Therefore, there exists a need for advanced planning to assure education in Nevada continues at a high level, whether through on-prem- ise learning in schools or through remote teaching. Purpose. This policy paper discusses ways virtual teaching requires adaptations to teacher professional development, access to technology, and teacher preparation. Ways to improve the viability of virtual teaching to enhance student achievement, teacher performance, and transform schooling in Nevada are also discussed. Recommendations. A legislative commission could be established to capture lessons learned from this year’s virtual teaching and offer guidelines to ensure schools in Nevada always have the capability of switching between on-premise and remote learning.
