All schools – public and private -- are facing challenges this fall coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. The College of Education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls is working with administrators, teachers, and parents throughout the state to try and identify what educational approaches were most effective with students during the spring of 2020.
This research is supported by the Tommy G. Thompson Center for Public Leadership in Madison, which is interested in the experiences of both public and private schools in the state. UW-River Falls is reaching out to school communities to gather feedback. In particular:
1. If you were a school administrator during the spring of 2020, please complete a voluntary survey (https://tinyurl.com/y6nb78ru) that should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
2. If you were a teacher during the spring of 2020, please complete a voluntary survey (https://tinyurl.com/yyphnwmo) that should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
Participation will not expose you to any risk beyond the normal level of stress that is encountered when thinking about coping with the pandemic. Please complete the survey by December 7, 2020.
Responses to all surveys will be treated in a confidential manner. Names will not be associated with anyone’s responses. The combined, aggregated, and anonymous results will be widely distributed to the public, schools, parent groups, and professional educational associations.
