Preston Learning Community Input
JULY/AUGUST 2021

The purpose of this form is to collect feedback on the "Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan" for the 2021-2022 School Year and generate ideas for the American Recovery Plan: Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Recovery (ARP: ESSER) plan due in August 2021. A draft of the Safe Return plan is on our web site.
The Safe Return plan is a necessary component for our application for the ARP: ESSER grant. We are collecting ongoing feedback so that our plan can be confirmed or modified as needed.
Your voice matters.
The district leadership team will review the feedback from this survey and other sources to ensure that decisions are informed and aligned to the consensus of the community.
This survey is anonymous. Any data extracted from the from will not be linked to specific individuals. We will share summary data with the community so that we affirm our good faith effort to solicit community voice, to listen to stakeholders, and to integrate feedback.

Thank you for your insight and commitment to Preston Public Schools.

Is our "Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan" understandable?
ARP/ESSER GRANT PRIORITY: LEARNING ACCELERATION, ACADEMIC RENEWAL AND STUDENT ENGAGEMENT -- Advancing equity and access in education for students in Connecticut/Preston remain top priorities. Resources must focus on academic supports and recovery to accelerate learning for our students, particularly those disproportionately affected by the pandemic. *
Low Priority
High Priority
ARP/ESSER GRANT PRIORITY: FAMILY AND COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS -- The complex issues brought about by the pandemic have made it clear that the success of schools, families, and communities are interdependent and all have a stake in students' well-being. Investing in mutually beneficial school-family-community partnerships will not only support students to achieve their full potential, but it will also strengthen families and stabilize communities. *

ARP/ESSER GRANT PRIORITY: SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND MENTAL HEALTH OF THE STUDENTS AND OF OUR SCHOOL STAFF-- The school community experience during the pandemic has been one of collective challenge and trauma. We must be prepared to use strategic wraparound social, emotional, and mental health supports to restore and successfully re-engage our school communities. *

ARP/ESSER GRANT PRIORITY: STRATEGIC USE OF TECHNOLOGY, STAFF DEVELOPMENT, AND THE DIGITAL DIVIDE--Applying what we have learned during the pandemic requires careful consideration of the importance of student success to in-person learning and enrichment balanced with the strategic use of technology to engage and expand learning opportunities. Resources should be allowed to maintain or upgrade access to technology and connectivity into the long term and to ensure that technology training support is provided to students, school staff, and families to maximize student outcomes. *
Low Priority
High Priority
ARP/ESSER GRANT PRIORITY: BUILDING SAFE AND HEALTHY SCHOOLS--Ensuring our buildings are safe and healthy environments that enable all of our students to excel remains an important aspect of recovering from COVID-19. Resources may be used consistent with federal relief funding allowable. This includes ways to continue facility repairs and improvement, such as improving ventilation and providing more space for distancing. Resources should continue to be allocated to support the physical health and safety of our students and staff. *
