West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) families are being asked to respond to a survey about a possible return to in-person instruction. The “Thought Exchange” survey aims to “gather families’ feelings around returning to school,” the district said.

The survey was released in the wake of recently-proposed legislation, Assembly Bill 10, which would require public schools to reopen as soon as spring if infection rates drop. Under the proposed legislation, districts would be required to reopen once their county has moved from the State’s most restrictive color-coded purple tier. 

WCCUSD released its survey on Dec. 16, about a week after AB10 was introduced. Families have until Friday, Jan. 8 at 8 p.m. to respond.

“The survey asks questions around parents’/families’ feelings on what the District needs to consider to make families and students feel safe and supported to return to the classroom when it is safe to do so,” the district said.

The survey is available on the District’s website at www.wccusd.net.
