November 2020 Family Return Survey Results
In November of 2020, families were asked to review the instructional models under consideration and in each scenario choose between an in-person option or distance learning. Those enrolled in homeschool or independent study were also able to choose to remain in those programs.
The survey was designed as a tool to gather information and inform what impacts would result under each potential model. It was not designed to be a poll or vote for the most popular model.
Based on the results, staff analyzed the potential impacts determining that an in-person model offering a morning cohort and an afternoon cohort for on-campus learning with distance learners assigned to separate teachers would require reassigning thousands of students and hundreds of teachers to new classrooms. This massive shift of assignments had the potential to harm already delicate relationships built during distance learning. This data point was a major factor in the district's decision to select an in-person model that provides for in-person learners to receive two days of instruction on campus each week in the morning while teachers can provide instruction to their distance learning cohorts and those in-person learners not on campus for the day each afternoon.
