Survey seeks parents’ input on remote learning period

CIRCLEVILLE — Circleville City School District sent a digital survey to parents Monday with the goal of gleaning information from them about their view regarding the past couple of months.

The 21-question survey delves specifically the experiences of parents and students during the last nine-week period of the 2019-20 year when Ohio schools were closed, and teaching was conducted remotely because of restrictions employed due to COVID-19.

“This may come into play as we plan for the fall,” said Evan Debo, the district’s communication director.

A sample of the questions reveals the survey’s probe into the academic, health of the student, and concerns of parents. For example:

• On average, how much of the day is your child participating in remote/digital/or packet-based learning activities from school?

• What timeframe best describes when your student is actively engaged in remote learning?

• How concerned are you about your child’s learning while school is closed?

• How concerned are you about your child’s social emotional well-being during this time?

The district’s experiences since the school closed show that it has delivered two meals per day per student to 550 families. Anecdotally, between 60-70 percent of students engaged with the district online.

“The bigger concern for us is that there still are 30-40 percent without any interaction, he said.

Families that don’t have Internet access can request a paper survey from the district by calling 740-474-4340.
