BCPS seeks community input on reopening for upcoming school year

TOWSON, MD— TOWSON, MD. – What should Baltimore County Public Schools consider as it prepares for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year? To help with that preparation, BCPS is asking students, parents/caregivers, staff, and community members to provide feedback through the new BCPS Reopening Survey.

“Hearing from the entire community will help us craft a plan for next school year that takes into account the diverse needs of our families, staff, and schools,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “Our plan will prioritize state and local guidance about health and safety, as well as allowing for adjustments throughout the school year based on the spread of the virus. Your feedback will ensure that we understand how COVID-19 is impacting our county in different ways.”

The anonymous online survey addresses issues involving transportation; preferences for virtual and/or in-person learning; preferences about returning to buildings; and expected challenges. A design team made up of BCPS leaders from across the organization will use the survey results, advisory group feedback, available research, health guidelines, and promising practices from across the state and nation to recommend a plan to Dr. Williams.

The survey released today is available in English as well as Spanish for parents and students, and will close on Tuesday, June 30, at 11:59 p.m.

A survey available in Arabic, Chinese, and Urdu for parents and students is scheduled to open on Friday, June 26, and close on Thursday, July 2, at 11:59 p.m. That survey’s website will be shared when available.

Speakers of additional languages may call 443-809-6814 for assistance taking the survey.
