During the week ending February 12th, over 32,000 parents or caregivers responded to a Pulse Check™ with their parent praise and insights. We hope seeing the trends last week was a helpful experience for you all. We will be sharing these collective insights from parents across the country each week. Take a look at an overview of trends of praises and insights from families across the country.

Last week, 73% 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 school staff members and the hard work they are doing during this time
  • feedback and comments about school reopening plans and future or current COVID safety protocols
  • requests for 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
  • desire for updates on academic progress, current grades for their child, and requests for progress reports

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 parent praise and insights align with what you see?
