District Return to School Parent Survey Results
The District issued a survey to its parent to collect feedback and guidance related to the development of the District's return to school plans for the fall of 2020.
Thank you to all of the 702 respondents that participated in the Ludington Area Schools Return to School parent survey. These 702 respondents represented 1,256 of the District's students (approximately 58%). The results of the parent survey have been valuable to the District's Return to School Task Force in the development of our District's plans, and the District appreciates the time that its parents took in completing this survey.
The District will use this information to develop its return to school learning plans for the fall, while aligning the plans that it develops to the required minimum standards that will be provided to Districts on June 30, 2020 by the State of Michigan and the Governor's Return to School Advisory Council.
