MCPS Seeking Feedback on 2019-2020 School Year Calendar
MCPS has launched the 2019–2020 Calendar Survey. This survey includes questions regarding school closure on various days, including religious and non-religious holidays. This data will be analyzed and reviewed as context for the development of the 2019–2020 school year calendar. MCPS is seeking input from families, students, staff and the broader community.
MCPS and Hanover Research worked collaboratively to fulfill the resolution passed by the Board of Education on November 14, 2017, to develop a calendar survey for stakeholders.
Parents and guardians will receive survey invitations through e-mail or mailed postcard with instructions to access the survey. Parents and guardians will also receive information about how and where to access the secondary students (grades 6–12) survey with their invitation. This will allow parents and guardians to moderate access to the survey for their child(ren).
The survey is translated into Amharic, Chinese, French, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese. All participants will have the option to choose one of these languages at the start of the online survey. Paper copies are also available in English and in the translated languages. Paper copies are available at all MCPS schools upon request. The survey window closes May 22, 2018.
Participation in the survey is voluntary, and data collected will be anonymous and confidential.
