Have you switched schools or considered homeschooling?
We know that about 3,000 kindergarten-age students didn't enroll in school for the 2020-21 school year. This year, families might have enrolled their children back in the school in their district.
Or, perhaps you attended schools last year but switched your child to a homeschool or private school option this fall.
Did you change or consider changing schools depending on mask mandates, vaccination rates or other pandemic measures? Do you see this as a long-term change?
