What did you learn from the parent and student surveys?
Students who need additional supports
We heard that parents wanted more structure to at-home learning. Some struggled with technology and internet access. There was a wide difference to the amount of learning and supports that people experienced. So we are dealing with these issues, And planning for how to support students who do not have access. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development has invested $4 million to acquire 14000 more devices that will be distributed to regions to support needs. Clear expectations for at home teaching and learning have been developed with our partners in response to the feedback from parents, students and teachers and will be shared so that everyone knows what to expect and what to do if there are struggles.
