Other: We need more parent and student engagement. A large part of our demographics are made up of students who don't plan on attending a college. They plan to join the workforce and are eager to do so, therefore,  they don't see the need for a high school diploma and are quick to consider dropping out. Or,  a major issue I see is that the students have realized that they don't have to complete their regular coursework. They can just wait until summer school and make up numerous credits in a few days time. I think this is terrible. It diminishes the teachers ability to keep students engaged when students don't see a need for it.Question 3


Question 4: What do you believe are the highest priority needs (academic, social, emotional, and/or mental health, etc.) for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year and for the 2021-2022 school year related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic? (Check all that apply)

  6. Regaining credits to graduate
  7. Social emotional support
  8. Fill in 1: help bridge academic gaps caused by the pandemic
  9. Fill in 2: class sizes will have a huge impact on learning. Smaller classes will enable teacher to meet SEL and academic concerns.
  10. Fill in 3: While I believe that social and emotional support is very important, I have concerns about where we are headed if we continue to adopt the responsibility of teaching mental, social and emotional learning verses keeping the focus on academics, leadership and team building skills. Schools are comprised of a large amount of teachers who are trained to teach academics and only a SMALL amount of counselors who aren't even afforded the time needed to counsel, but rather meet other deadlines related to credits and academic completions. 
  11. Fill in 4: teaching students to be accountable for their INACTIONS
  12. Fill in 5: parent support efforts

 Question 4


Question 5: What strategies have been most effective in supporting the needs of students in New Caney ISD during the COVID-19 pandemic? (Check all that apply)


  1. Availability of digital learning resources
  2. Availability of school supplies on campus
  3. Availability of sanitizing products
  4. Child nutrition services
  5. Counseling
  6. COVID prevention
  7. Learning management system (LMS) - Canvas
  8. Teachers
  9. Fill in 1: I would love to say that by providing digital learning resources, our students were able to meet their academic requirements from home, however, I don't know if that were the case based on numbers. I would venture to say that even though resources were provided, a large number of students failed due to little to no parent engagement or discipline to staty structured and diligent in their coursework. So much time was required of school staff to reach out to the students numerous times without good results.
  10. Fill in 2: adapting to the needs of children; developing students' multiple intelligences
  11. Fill in 3: support was very poor for remote HS learners

Question 5


Question 6: Beyond the traditional school day, which types of programs do you believe New Caney ISD should consider to accelerate student learning? (Check all that apply)


  1. Afterschool programs
  2. Blended learning
  3. Small groups during the school day
  4. Summer learning programs
  5. Tutoring
  6. Class sizes
  7. Summer enrichment
  8. Fill in 1: extra support for teachers to meet the academic needs of those students struggling and who have gaps gaps.
  9. Fill in 2: I believe after a long day of school, afterschool programs should be avoided.
  10. Fill in 3: students are given ample class time for instruction and engagement. If a student is struggling I beleive that tutoring is a great idea. I beleive that summer school has been taken advantage of and should only be offered in specific cases where a student was committed to the learning process but unfortunately fell short based on inability to successfully learn the material rather than laziness and little to no attempt to learn the material. 
  11. Fill in 4: hire more teachers so classrooms are with less students and teacher can actually help student that need that extra help.
  12. Fill in 5: parent support programs with community resources
