FLOUR BLUFF, Texas — The Flour Bluff Independent School District is asking for feedback from all parents on how they feel the district handled the 2019-2020 school year.

The 2019-2020 school year clearly has stood out from the rest. From the ongoing health crisis to kids not being able to come back to the campus and to graduation held outside have led to life-changing events due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Flour Bluff Independent School District, like many other schools across the state, faced several changes.

FBISD changes also included a new district superintendent to facing a major health crisis.

“A lot of the questions especially at the beginning of the survey, do focus on the response to COVID 19, and the school closure how they’re children cope during the school closure our distance learning and things like that,” FBISD spokesperson Kim Sneed said.

Other questions on the survey include district communication efforts, education preparation, bullying, and much more.

Staff say the responses parents provide will help the district plan for the future.

“How are our facilities? Safety. There were a lot of topics so then we can kind of take that data and break it up among the different departments and find the areas where we have been doing great, and the areas on that maybe where we need to improve,” says Sneed.

Similar surveys have been commissioned in the past, but FBISD staff says the 2019-2020 school year questionnaire holds much weight.

“We don’t know if we don’t hear from your community, so it is very important for us to hear from them, so we really do encourage them to complete the survey,” Sneed said.

FBISD says the district says parents can remain anonymous and will have until the end of the month to respond.
