Results – Summary of FCPS Reopening Survey Data

July 14-23, 2020


With the growing concern over getting our children back in school as quickly as possible I have been seeing more parents asking what the results to the Reopening Parent Survey were.  The Tentacle provides you with two images from the five-page survey results as shared during the July 29, 2020 Board of Education Meeting.

Board of Education Meetings can be located here.

Here is a link to the full Summary of FCPS Reopening Survey Data, July 15-23, 2020.

Without knowing the exact number of FCPS employees (FCPS never gives an “exact” amount) I guesstimate the staff response rate at around 77.48%

FCPS had 44,367 students last year.  If 1.5 of them have 2 parents or guardians, roughly 66,550 were available to respond.  The response rate for parents/guardians was 21.17%.

Regarding school staff responses, remember this survey was taken before FCPS decided to lay off hundreds of employees.  Their responses might be different had they known their fate.

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
