The AISD Family Pulse survey was launched to all families on June 24th and closed on July 13th. Families were asked to respond to the survey once for each child they had enrolled in AISD in the 2019- 2020 school year, excluding exiting seniors. Families responded on behalf of just over 26,000 students (N= 26,255) out of a possible 75,592 students for about a 35% response rate for the survey. Families were asked questions about their plans and preferences for sending each of their children physically back to school in 2020-2021.
