Reopening of Schools Advisory Committee


The purpose of the Reopening of Schools Advisory Committee is to host a collective conversation about school closure during COVID, planning for school re-opening, and how these decisions impact us all. These conversations will help guide our decisions on how to best keep our hope up, promote student learning engaging and relevancy, and support our families and educators.

We are inviting you to be part of a collective conversation by participating in this re-opening of schools perception survey. Your perception and sense of hope will provide feedback to inform decision making for the re-opening of our schools this Fall. 

Please take a few minutes of your time to complete this survey. The survey will close by the end of the day on Monday, June 15th.


Students Grades 4-12:

Results of the survey will be shared with the public and posted on our website two weeks after the close of the survey.

Thank you for being a part of our collective conversations around school closures and continuous learning.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Michelle Kuss-Cybula
