The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District is asking students, parents and teachers to complete a survey assessing the last few weeks of the spring semester, when all 42 school on the peninsula switched to emergency remote learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The survey was released on May 20 and will be open through May 31, according to a May 20 press release from the school district.
“There are a lot of uncertainties about what the start of school will look like in August,” Clayton Holland, assistant superintendent of instruction, said in the press release. “To help prepare for those uncertainties, the KPBSD has a working group of 20 members that are planning for the start-up of the next school year, and your responses will assist us.”
Students that were in grades nine through 12 this year are encouraged to complete the survey on their own, and parents or guardians should reply on behalf of their students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
Families with more than one child should respond once for each child enrolled in the district.
The survey covers topics such as ability to learn and access online resources this semester as well individual expectations of what the fall semester should look like.
A separate survey is available for KPBSD employees. Both can be found online on the School District’s website at kpbsd.org.
