As we await guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Governor’s Office regarding requirements for reopening schools in August, we are seeking parent input on potential reopening scenarios. These survey results will help further inform planning efforts already underway, so thank you for taking this brief 10-minute survey.

Please keep in mind that COVID-19 continues to evolve, and our planning is largely dependent upon requirements/restrictions the Restore Illinois outlines. When further guidance is received (expected in late June), we will finalize our plans and share them with the District 15 community.

Question Title

* 1. What school does your child(ren) attend? (If your children attend multiple schools, select all that apply)

Question Title

* 2. What grade(s) will your child(ren) be in during the 2020-21 school year?

Question Title

* 3. What program(s) is your child(ren) enrolled in?

Question Title

* 4. What factors would make you comfortable having your child return to in-person instruction in the fall, should District 15 be permitted to do so?

Question Title

* 5. Prior to a widely available treatment or vaccine for COVID-19, I would opt out of in-person learning and request remote learning virtual classroom placement for my child.

Question Title

* 6. If there is requirement that all students wear face coverings/masks at school in the fall...

Question Title

* 7. If schools are permitted to open for in-person instruction in the fall, a hybrid/blended model may be considered, meaning students would learn from home some days and come to school in person on some days. If this model were implemented, would your family encounter childcare challenges on the days he/she is not in school? -- please only think about your own family situation when answering this question.

Question Title

* 8. We are looking into possibly using additional community facilities to help physically distance our students in the 2020-21 school year. If this becomes an option, district transportation would be provided to students attending school at a different location. If this option were implemented:

Question Title

* 9. COVID-19 health and safety regulations in place in the fall could limit the number of students allowed on a school bus. How important is it for your family to have access to bus transportation? 


Question Title

* 10. To reduce the number of students on a school bus and allow for greater physical distancing, District 15 is considering moving from our current two start times to three. The length of the school day will stay the same, but this would mean some children would be picked up as early as 6:50 a.m.  and other children would not return home until close to 5:00 p.m.

Without knowing which schools would fall into the earliest, mid or late start time, would you support a system with three different start times to reduce the number of children on each school bus?

Question Title

* 11. In addition to survey participation, we’d like parent feedback in the form of several focus groups. These focus groups would be facilitated by administration using Zoom in late June/early July. If you are interested in participating in a one-hour focus group, please enter your full name and email address below.

Question Title

* 12. With information we have as of today, which option would you prefer to begin the 2020-21 school year?
