Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine

View the plan, developed with our community

Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine are the guiding goals to reopen schools for the 2021-2022 school year. Below is the full, multi-year plan developed in partnership with our various stakeholders. It is also a reflection of our commitment to using the powerful lessons we have learned during the COVID-19 pandemic to cover unfinished learning and ultimately support students in reaching their full potentials.

We want students, families, and teachers to be clear about what they will experience as they return to our schools. This plan includes: 
 

   - The instructional practices we will use to accelerate and personalize learning.

   - The enriched academic, athletic, and artistic opportunities they will be able to access.

   - How their voices will continue to be used to inform decisions.

   - How we will continue to support wellness.

   - How we will build relationships and trust. 
 

This webpage is the digital hub to keep you informed and fully engaged about this critical work.

2021-22 Stakeholder Engagement Opportunities

City Schools’ stakeholders have been invaluable partners during the past two school years providing insight and perceptions that were instrumental in informing our plan for moving forward and reopening our schools. This strong collaborative effort is essential and will continue for the current school year and beyond. Moving forward, there will be many opportunities for stakeholders to weigh in on their thoughts, experiences, and ideas for the best strategies to help all students succeed in our classrooms to better prepare them for their futures.

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%).
