Arlington Public Schools seeks feedback from parents and students about reopening schools in the fall
SurveyArlington Public Schools is asking parents/guardians and students to complete a survey to help the district determine the best options for re-opening schools this fall.

Since May, several district teams have been meeting to discuss the best models for reopening schools based on Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) guidance which includes requirements from the Washington Department of Health and Washington Labor & Industry.

In addition, the district has formed a Reopening Arlington Schools 2020 (RAS20) committee comprised of students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators and community members to look at the different options. The RAS20 committee will review the OSPI guidance and the staff, student and parent survey results to identify and recommend the best model/s for reopening Arlington schools in the fall.

“We sent out a reopening survey to staff last Friday and have received hundreds of responses,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “We want to make sure parents and students have the same opportunity to respond.”

The parent/guardian survey is available here. The survey will only take a few minutes to complete. If you have more than one child in our district, please complete a survey for each child.

We would also like feedback from students. Parents, please have your child complete the following student survey
