APS conducted family, student (grades 4-12) and staff surveys in June. The purpose of the survey was to identify trends across the APS community, to supplement our work, in collaboration with our Stakeholder Task Force, regional superintendents, and the Arlington County Public Health Division, as we develop health and safety plans to ensure that students and staff are learning and working in a safe environment, and plans to provide the needed professional supports and training for staff so the 2020-21 school year can be a success for all.
With more than 14,000 total responses, we heard from a cross-section of our stakeholder groups. The survey has helped provide a deeper understanding of the following:
- Staff and family comfort levels in returning to work and school
- Supports that students and staff need to be successful
- Staff and family input on distance learning experiences to inform enhancements to services
Thank you to everyone who participated in this survey.
