Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine

Give input in May, and feedback in June

Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine are the guiding goals to reopen schools for the 2021-2022 school year. We need your thoughts and ideas in two ways - input early and feedback later - to build a plan that offers safe, effective in-person learning for students while providing families with a virtual learning option. The final plan will be presented to you as early as mid-to-late July 2021.

This webpage is the digital hub to keep you informed and fully engaged about this critical work. You will find our planning timeline, learn how to participate, and access essential resources. The keystone is your voice.

June Stakeholder Engagement Feedback

The following data reports provide our promised commitment to transparency related to the ongoing Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine work designed to inform City Schools’ guiding goals for the safe and effective reopening of our schools for the 2021-22 school year.

This report reflects the results from the second phase of our extensive stakeholder engagement soliciting feedback on our recommended strategies in nine key areas. The strategies shared with all stakeholders were developed from their input from our May engagement sessions.

The feedback from the June sessions will help guide our final plan slated for public consumption at the end of July.


EOY Parent Survey

To honor the multiple ways families have provided feedback to us, we are sharing data from the End of Year survey results from May 2021.  In addition to the reports above, this data will help inform the district’s Reconnect. Restore. Reimagine. Plan. This survey yielded 15,190 responses and included invaluable insight.  Here are some highlights:

  • 80% of families responded favorably when asked about overall school satisfaction and stated they were extremely or mostly satisfied with their school (39% extremely satisfied and 40% mostly satisfied)
    • Families with children who attended in-person responded more favorably to the question about overall satisfaction (83% compared to 78%) 
  • 77% of families responded favorably when asked: How well do you feel your child’s school is preparing them for their next academic year? (41% extremely well and 34% mostly well) 
    • Families with children who attended in-person responded more favorably to this question (79% compared to 75%) 
  • The top resources families identified to help them and their child be successful this fall were afterschool offerings (50%), academic tutoring (48%), mindfulness and stress relief (36%), arts, music and athletics (37%-40%), summer school programming (32%) and continuing a virtual school option (31%).
