OPSB Extends Deadline For Citywide Survey
NEW ORLEANS – The Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) has extended the deadline to participate in their citywide survey to Friday, May 5.
As it looks to enhance New Orleans public schools, the OPSB would like to hear the community’s thoughts on public education and gain an understanding of what they want to see in the future from OPSB, its schools, staff and students. Thousands of responses have already been submitted.
The OPSB encourages every New Orleans resident aged 18 and up to participate, regardless of if they have a child currently enrolled in a New Orleans public school. All responses are anonymous and participation is completely voluntary.
Initial results from the survey will be presented to the Board by Thursday, May 25, and circulated with the public shortly thereafter. Community Focus Groups to further elaborate on the survey’s findings are currently being scheduled and will be held in early June at libraries in neighborhoods across New Orleans. Exact dates and times for Community Focus Groups will be announced later this spring along with information on how residents wishing to participate in the Community Focus Groups can sign-up to join a group.
The survey is accessible in a variety of locations:
• Text NOLAEDSURVEY to 41411 to receive a link to the survey on your phone.
• Orleans Parish public school students have received flyers to take home with survey information.
• Limited copies of print surveys are available at the OPSB central office, Recovery School District (RSD) office and Family Resource Centers.
OPSB currently oversees 32 schools, including 25 charters, six network schools and one education program for students in secure care facilities.
