Dear District Administrator,
2019 Act 185 requires all school districts to report the impacts of school closures to the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) by November 1, 2020, and for DPI to submit a report based on this information to the legislature.
DPI developed a survey tool to collect this information, which is now open for school districts to complete. You will receive a unique link to this survey today via a separate email. The survey includes information required by Act 185 as well as a few additional questions, developed in consultation with our education partners, to provide further context.
Information regarding this required survey is at https://dpi.wi.gov/policy-budget/2019-act-185-survey. The webpage includes printable versions of the survey questions to review in advance and helps organize data collection work among district staff. The department recommends one person in the district be assigned to complete the survey as only one individual per school district will be able to enter the data. If you do not wish to complete the survey in one sitting, you will be able to enter and exit the survey without losing data.
If you have questions about this required survey, please email DPIAct185Survey@dpi.wi.gov.
