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

The survey is available in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

Encuesta de aprendizaje remoto

Aprender en casa ha creado un enfoque completamente nuevo para la educación, y queremos saber cómo ha funcionado para usted y su familia. Le pedimos que realice una breve encuesta para ayudarnos a recopilar comentarios sobre su experiencia con el aprendizaje remoto.

La encuesta es:

· Disponible en todos los idiomas del DOE

· Anónimo para todos los encuestados.

Los resultados de la encuesta ayudarán a las escuelas a continuar apoyando a las familias y los estudiantes en el entorno de aprendizaje actual.

La encuesta está disponible en árabe, bengalí, chino, inglés, francés, criollo haitiano, coreano, ruso, español y urdu.

Launch of Remote Learning Technical Support

The DOE is launching a family-facing Remote Learning Technical Support ticket system. Families (or someone on their behalf) can submit requests for technical support for a broad range of issues, including application support, lost, stolen, or broken devices, and delivery status, though the Technical Support for Families page. Note that when families select a topic and issue in the ticket submission form, the form will automatically list common resolutions to technical support problems; if the suggested resolutions do not resolve the family’s issue, they can continue to submit a tech support ticket by completing the form.

This family-facing system, and the DOE staff remote learning support ticket system, is intended to replace emails to the inbox. Schools should share this new resource with families.
