Remote Learning Survey

Learning at home has created an entirely new approach to education, and we want to hear how it has been working for you and your family. We are asking you to take a short survey to help us collect feedback about your experience with remote learning. The survey is:

  • Available in all DOE languages
  • Anonymous for all respondents
  • The same for all boroughs (survey is divided by borough to make it easier for you to identify your school name)

The results of the survey will help schools to continue to support families and students in the current learning environment.

Take the Remote Learning Survey 

Who can take the survey?

  • All Parents/guardians of DOE students in any grade
  • Students in grades six through twelve

Please take the survey by May 1, 2020. The survey is available in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

Select the borough where you or your child attends school to take the survey.
