Family Trends from Week Ending March 12

Engagement, Feedback, For Schools, Possip / /

During the week ending March 12th, 2021, over 10,000 parents, family members, or caregivers responded to a pulse check with praise and insights. We know families hear from their school about the Possip Pulse Checks trends in their community – but we think it’s helpful information to hear what is happening across the 25+ states where Possip partners with schools, districts and families. Take a look at an overview of parent praise and insight from across the country.

parent praise and insightsLast week, 75% of parents responded that they were happy with their child’s school, with the remaining saying they were mostly happy or not happy with their child’s school.

We saw a few themes across the country:

  • Praise for the way staff members are handling school reopenings and virtual learning during this time
  • Appreciation for community events that happened this week in various formats (i.e. virtually or drive-thru events)
  • Continued feedback, questions, and comments about school reopening plans and COVID safety measures
  • Continued requests for additional academic support for students who are struggling or could benefit from one-on-one support
  • Families of students with an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) shared that they needed more support for their children
  • Continued desire for increased communication from both the school leadership teams and teachers
  • Questions and feedback about attendance policies and requesting follow-up about students being marked absent

Here are a few suggested tools and resources based on what we are hearing.

We also shared these resources with our partner schools…

We’d love to hear from you. What else do you want to need or see? Do these samples of parent praise and insights align with what you see?
