Kentucky Department of Education seeks feedback through online survey

GLASGOW Ky.-In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Kentucky Department of Education is seeking the feedback of everyone involved in the state’s school districts.

A survey is now available for any Kentucky school district stakeholder to take. This can be anyone from parents, students, school faculty and staff, and disability rights organizations just to name a few.

In this survey, the participant can identify the positive ways the district has responded to the pandemic, as well as what they would like to see done differently.

This survey will be used to develop plans for the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds, which will provide more than $2 billion for the state’s public schools. Local district officials are urging everyone to put in their thoughts.

“I think the more that parents can work with the education community, the better off our kids are. We’re always interested in hearing what they have to say. Parents have seen the gambit of practices of instructional techniques and practices, things that worked, things that haven’t worked during this pandemic,” said Barren County School District director of instruction Kathy Burris.

Decisions on the local use of the funds will be made by local boards of education. The link to take this survey can be found here.
