Washington, DC—The D.C. State Board of Education (SBOE) has launched an anonymous, online survey for public and public charter school teachers in the District of Columbia. The State Board seeks to understand the thoughts and experiences of teachers during virtual teaching, their perceptions of their student’s success in virtual learning, and what supports they need to work effectively. The State Board also wants to learn about other important factors public-school teachers have experienced while teaching virtually and their thoughts on returning to in-person teaching and how that correlates to retention.
The survey, administered by the State Board in partnership with Resonant Education, is open to traditional public and public charter teachers who currently hold a teaching position in the 2020–21 school year. The survey is anonymous and confidential and the aggregated results of the survey will be published in a report to inform strategy and policy recommendations for the State Board and other District education leaders.
The survey should take approximately 15–20 minutes to complete on any device that can connect to the internet. The survey is open until Friday, January 29, 2021. Teachers can access the online survey here: http://bit.ly/SBOEAllTeacherSurvey.
