Time Sensitive PMSD Survey: Select Your Preferred Options for Reopening Schools in the Fall

Click HERE to access an important survey for parents to share their preferred option for reopening PMSD schools in the fall. The survey includes the 3 options presented at the July 30 PMSD School Board meeting & a NEW 4th option based on parent feedback. Parents only have until Noon, Monday, August 10, 2020, to complete this survey, so results can be presented at the August 12, 2020 PMSD School Board meeting.

Note:

Parents may only select one preferred instructional model option for this survey. The E-Learning Option is only available if PMSD opens schools using the Hybrid Option. The New Option 4- Learn from Home Virtual Program is a stand-alone option and only available if PMSD would reopen schools as 100% virtual for the start of the school year. (Updated August 5, 2020)
