Feedback requested to help school district strategize remote learning amid unprecedented closure
Parents asked to share perspective on children’s current remote learning situation

By Greg Lane, Hingham Current Staff, April 27, 2020 

The Hingham Public Schools recently published an online survey for parents of school-aged children to gauge their successes — or struggles — with remote learning.

Superintendent Paul Austin shared the survey as part of his “April 23 Community Message” email to parents.  
A statement from the Hingham Public Schools Leadership Team that was included with Superintendent Austin’s update stated, “We appreciate the diversity of family experiences and stressors and our educators continue to strive to address the needs of Hingham students during this challenging time.”  

 

Governor Charlie Baker suspended all in-school learning for the rest of the year last Tuesday.  As a result, Hingham schools have transitioned to remote learning during this time — leaving many parents to oversee or participate in their children’s education.  

 

The results from the survey will help guide school officials as they seek to refine the District’s Remote Learning Plan.

 

Parents and guardians with a school-aged child are being asked to complete a separate survey for each of their children.  The survey can be accessed here.  The Hingham Public Schools Leadership Team hope it will be possible for families to complete the survey by Monday, April 27th so that they can make revisions to their "evolving plans" in a timely manner. 

 

All information submitted is kept confidential.
