NMPED requests feedback from families
SANTA FE (KSMX)- The New Mexico Public Education Department is asking families to complete an online survey about their experiences with continuous learning during the school closing period triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Survey responses will help school districts better meet community needs and help the New Mexico School Reentry Task Force shape plans for reopening public schools in the state.
Parents can expect to spend about eight minutes per student to complete the New Mexico Family Education Survey. They will answer both open- and close-ended questions about their child’s level of engagement in school, the family’s level of satisfaction with their school’s expectations and supports, their school’s ability to meet the child’s individual needs, and their communication preferences.
NMPED is also launching a website, NM Vistas to make it easier for schools, educators and families to learn about local schools and their offerings.
Parents will find the information they can use when advocating for their children, schools and communities. Other valuable information available on NM Vistas includes academic growth data, attendance and graduation rates, and learning environment insights.
According to a Facebook post from the NMPED:
Right now, the department is working with Teach Plus New Mexico to reopen a survey about the training and support you need to be successful with Continuous Learning. They’re also adding open-ended questions that will allow you to talk about your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The survey will be sent to all teachers via an email Teacher to Teacher update sent from our 2020 Teacher of the Year, Mandi Torrez.
