In this paper we discuss the first results obtained during the testing of school digital transformation monitoring, which has been developed and implemented by the Institute of Education, Higher School of Economics, for Federal State Autonomous Institution “Fund for New Forms of Education Development” in the interests of the Ministry of Education of Russian Federation. We present a clustering-based tool, that helps to highlight the specifics of digital transformation in different groups of schools (clusters). It is shown that processes of digital transformation can vary significantly. We conclude that there is a need for further elaboration of the approach presented within the next stages of monitoring digital transformation, planned for 2020–2021.

The situation with coronavirus infection has dealt a big impact to a number of public institutions. It now seems clear that this pandemic - and the crisis it will entail - will affect the most deprived students the most. Pupils of small rural schools (more often remote ones), from disadvantaged families and with low results will suffer the most, since for them the period of long quarantine will be the most severe blow compared to those who have sufficient opportunities to switch to remote forms of work. In the current situation, the family is again beginning to play a dominant role in the education of the child; the school system is unlikely to be able to do anything to help those who simply do not have the opportunity to attend classes. Children with special needs are deprived of the help of specialists, whom parents cannot replace. Students from families with a low level of education, without the help of teachers, run the risk of significantly falling behind and not cope with the program. This applies even more to children from socially disadvantaged families who do not have conditions for distant learning activities at home. The aim of the work is to obtain data in a municipality case and compare it with data at the level of the Russian Federation.
