PLEASE COMPLETE: Connecticut Survey on Distance Learning

Waterbury Public Schools is pleased to offer this survey in order to obtain information from our families and teachers. The Connecticut Family School Partnerships (CFSP) developed The Connecticut Survey on Families and Distance Learning with the goal to collect data from both families and teachers on the impact of distance learning.

The survey was developed in collaboration with five Family Engagement Directors from Connecticut, the CFSP Leadership Team at CREC, the Connecticut Department of Education, evaluators from Cross Sector Consulting and the National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University. 

We will receive a summary of our data within two weeks of the survey closing on Wednesday, July 8. The data will be critical in preparing for the 2020-2021 school year and fostering dialogue among families and educators during the coming school year. 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey. Please share it with other families and teachers across Waterbury Public Schools.
