Now obviously I cannot speak for all school districts, but I can tell you the few I am familiar with are woefully under equipped for online learning. Under equipped not only in terms of infrastructure (bandwidth, hardware) but also software (applications and websites) suitable for remote learning.Why did your state tell you not to introduce or cover any new material? That seems negligent.
I think remote learning can be just as good as in person learning if it is done even halfway well. It does not take a rocket scientist to teach online.
I am taking a lot of online classes right now that are normally only offered in person. So far, they are all fabulous. And this is by individuals (single persons) and nonprofit institutions that have a lot fewer resources than school districts.
Our district thinks using the exact same set up for in class learning will work for remote learning - it does not. Part of the reason for this is our software (applications and websites) simply do not introduce material in such a way that it reaches the many student learning styles. Independent learners have the best chance to succeed in this environment but no so much other learners. That is the issue with remote learning - it only reaches one learning style effectively.
