The 2020-21 District-Wide Survey will open March 10.

We all know that school has been very different this year. While digital learning has been a change from what we are all used to, there are some things about it that are similar to in-person learning. This year’s DWS takes into account these differences and similarities by adding and removing some questions, but many remain the same. We will provide additional guidance within the survey about how respondents should think about the questions this year. It is important to ask the same questions so we can compare responses from year to year.

Students, parents, teachers, full-time school support staff, principals, and assistant principals are eligible to take the survey, making it one of the best tools we have for assessing stakeholder perspectives across numerous topics impacting our operations. The responses are also essential measures of progress related to our new Board Goals & Guardrails. For more information, contact the District-Wide Survey Team at schoolsurveys@philasd.org.
