Parent Preference Survey Data
Duarte Unified issued a Parent Preference Survey requesting feedback regarding the instructional models parents would feel most comfortable with for their children due to COVID-19 for the upcoming school year. The survey window was open between June 5 - 15, 2020. It is important for our community to know, every comment was thoughtfully analyzed by District Leadership as well as included within the data analyzed and discussed by the Re-Visioning Steering Committee and Taskforce members. This information will assist to inform the recommendation the Re-Visioning Steering Committee will make to the Board of Education as to the best plan for the instructional model(s) the district will use for the 2020-2021 school year.
