IV.5. Report on Parent Survey
As part of a coordinated response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in partnership with the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas developed a Parent/Guardian Survey for soliciting family input on what is working now and what may be considered for the future.  
The survey’s purpose was to involve families in identifying:
  • family concerns
  • how families are making decisions
  • family awareness of options and resources available 
  • family considerations for the future
 This survey did not identify individual district responses but was developed to establish an understanding of the state as a whole.
