As our current school year winds down, we are already busy planning for the next one. The district will be welcoming all students back to the classroom five days a week next school year, and this Fall 2021 Survey is a chance for families to help inform the district’s planning.
We want to engage as many parents as possible by the survey deadline of Friday, June 18, and as leaders in our school community, you are in a unique position to encourage families to make their voices heard. The Fall 2021 Survey will gather feedback that is critical to the district’s planning process, and that will help us ensure parents are comfortable sending their students back to school in person next fall. It will also help the district clarify how families prefer to receive updates as planning for the new school year continues.
This survey is not about whether students will learn virtually or in-person in the fall. The vast majority of students will attend school in person, and CPS is working on a virtual option for those children who cannot return due to medical reasons. More information on this plan will be shared with families in the near future.
I thank you for supporting CPS in this engagement process and look forward to collaborating with you as planning for our new school year continues.
