Responsible Return Survey Results

The Mequon-Thiensville School District has released results from its Responsible Return to School parent and guardian survey.

Parent and guardian feedback and input continue to be important. We asked parents and guardians to help us best prepare for the coming school year by completing a brief survey. The anonymous responses will guide our planning for a responsible return to school following our extended school closure.

Parents and guardians were surveyed on a number of topics including how comfortable they would feel sending their child back to school for in-person leaning in fall, and what health guidelines were most important. The survey also asked for feedback on distance learning during the school closure in spring 2020.

Key Facts and Insights

  • The survey was open from June 22-29, 2020. There will be other opportunities to provide feedback throughout the summer.
  • 2,787 responses were submitted, representing feedback from six schools and across grade level bands.
  • 70 percent of respondents indicated they would be comfortable sending their child back to school if reasonable precautions were put in place, or they indicated they did not have strong concerns about sending their child back to school.
  • The health guidelines that participants ranked highest included daily temperature screenings and face mask requirements. In the thoughts shared in open-ended text fields, however, opinions on face masks varied widely with strong expressions of opinion on both sides.
