Remote Learning Survey Results

In May, Eanes ISD launched a survey to obtain input and feedback from various stakeholder groups about the district’s remote learning plan in the spring of 2020. Surveys were distributed to students (grades 4-12), educators (ECSE, K-12 & ATS) and parents (ECSE, K-12 & ATS).

Thank you to those who took time to respond. A total of 6,030 people participated in the survey, comprising 4,075 parents, 1,477 students and 478 educators. Below are some highlights of the responses:

70% of educators said the amount of time spent on instruction was “About Right”
62% of students said the amount of time spent interacting with teachers was “About Right”
53% of parents said the amount of time spent interacting with teachers was “About Right” while 39% said it was “Too Little”
57% of parents said the amount of schoolwork assigned was “About Right” while 31% said it was “Too Little”

32% of families of children with IEPs said they “Somewhat Agreed” the lessons and activities were appropriate and helped to reach IEP goals while 30% said they “Mostly Agreed”
54% of parents said the amount of time spent interacting with teachers was “About Right” while 38% said it was “Too Little”

Regarding return to work/school questions:

28% of parents said they would send their child(ren) to return to school provided social distancing requirements are in place
26% of parents said they would send their child(ren) to school whether or not there are social distancing requirements in place
