Address your school community's needs in real time when the academic year begins

Back to school for 2020-21 will look different than any other year. Not only will students, families, and staff be returning to a new learning environment, but they are also coping with stress and trauma due to the pandemic and recent racial injustice. As the leading provider of K-12 surveys, Panorama is offering back-to-school surveys to help school districts understand student, family, and staff member experiences and feedback during the critical first few weeks of school. We recommend administering these surveys during the first 1-6 weeks of the school year.
