Return-to-Learn Parent Survey

Dear CCPS School Community:

With the 2019-20 school year completed, there is much anticipation and discussion about what school will look like for the 2020-21 school year. Caroline County Public Schools, like educational organizations across the Commonwealth, is now wrestling with how to effectively manage the public health risks of COVID-19 while simultaneously resuming the core functions of our school division.

Amidst this, CCPS remains committed to the health and well-being of all school community members and to supporting the academic and social-emotional progress of all students. As such, the school division has been actively preparing for the re-opening of school. A Return-to-Learn task force comprised of department supervisors, principals, and teachers has been planning over the past month for a variety of scenarios for returning to school that include a regular return (social distancing measures), virtual/distance learning, and a variety of alternate models.

To ensure the task force develops a plan reflective of the Caroline school community and the Commonwealth, VDH, and VDOE reopening guidelines outline by Governor Northam on June 9, we’ve developed a parent survey to determine the needs and wants of our families. In addition to parental input, CCPS staff will seeking feedback via an employee Return-to-Learn survey. All survey data will be used in conjunction with governmental agency information to develop a plan that is feasible, meaningful, and safe.

Your input is valuable, so please submit your responses by June 18! The CCPS task force will work diligently to release its Return-to-Learn plan by mid-July. We thank you for your continued support throughout the COVID-19 closure; we’re committed to meeting the continued challenges presented by the pandemic while delivering quality teaching and learning opportunities for the students of Caroline.
