Parents, staff members help guide decisions with survey responses
Immediately following the Fourth of July holiday, Ector County ISD leaders sent out three Back-to-School surveys to gauge the feelings of parents and staff members about returning to school on August 12. We want to thank all who participated in the survey – your responses are critical for us to create a safe and effective plan for the 2020-21 school year.
One of the main things we wanted to know from parents is, do they plan to send their children to school in-person or do they prefer to have their children learn through remote learning?
We also wanted information about computers, tablets, other devices and internet connectivity at home.
By filling out this survey, parents were not making a firm commitment to either in-person or remote learning but they did provide District officials with important information that will help schools design a day of school.
We also surveyed our ECISD team members about their feelings on returning to work.
Last month, a task force with 18 subcommittees began working on plans for the new school year. Each committee is gathering ideas to give recommendations for a different aspect of the day such as transportation, arrival at school, instruction, lunch, dismissal, and other activities.
