DOE Launches Survey

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Delaware Teaching and Learning Experiences Surveys. The surveys will help DDOE and your district/charter incorporate the voices of students, families, teachers, and school/district leaders, in shaping guidance around opening of schools in the fall of 2021, address unfinished learning, develop professional development for educators, and support wellness and social and emotional well-being of our students and educators. Responses will be kept anonymous, and all responses will be combined and reported in the aggregate to DDOE and your district/charter.
