The Bemidji Area School District is launching a community survey to gather input on how the district managed distance learning during the last few months of the 2019-2020 school year.
“I am proud of our district’s swift response and transition to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Superintendent Tim Lutz.
“From our teachers and parents to bus drivers and food service workers, our community rallied to put our students first. As we move forward and look at the beginning of next school year, I encourage our community members to participate in this survey so we can learn from these experiences and prepare for future needs.”
K12 Insight is a third-party survey platform, and the questions range from the pandemic’s impact on on academics to the district’s use of technology.
The survey is the first of several that will take place over this summer to assist the district with planning.
The Minnesota Department of Education is expected to give guidance on what the 2020-2021 school year will look like at the end of this month.
