Results of the Stamford Public School Parent Survey - Stamford Moms

The Stamford Public School District is sharing the results of the District’s Parent Survey so far. It was included in the agenda for Wednesday night’s Special School Board Meeting.

The survey includes questions about how parents feel about schools re-opening and distance learning in the 2020-2021 school year.

As of July 21, there were 7,298 responses to the survey representing 11,708 students. According to the survey, access to childcare is an important factor in the decision to return to school. 47% of those who responded have children in elementary school. That group of children 6-10 years old would be most in need of childcare, according to the survey.

47% of those who responded say they would likely send their children back to school for 5 day a week in school instruction. 63% say they would send their children back to school under a hybrid model and 42% would send their children back for distance only learning. 40% of those who responded say masks greatly impact their decision.
