Invite families and staff into the decision-making process for the 20-21 academic year

Following coronavirus (COVID-19) school closures, schools and districts are working quickly to plan for the upcoming school year. 

Will students return to school buildings with strict social distancing measures? Will online learning or distance learning continue through the fall? Will schools use a hybrid learning model to reduce class sizes and prevent coronavirus cases?

This summer, districts are convening task forces, reviewing department of education guidelines, and consulting with school boards to plan for school reopening in a pandemic. Reopening plans must account for instructional models, safety protocols, and the increased academic, social-emotional, and mental health needs of students, teachers, and staff.

Panorama's School Reopening Surveys ensure that stakeholder voices play a role in your district's reopening plan. The surveys cover key topics including instructional preferences, student supports, staff professional needs, and social-emotional well-being.

Schools and districts can customize the surveys and use the data to develop strong action plans and supports for next year. Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese translations are available for the family instrument.
