FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Survey results from Fargo Public School parents and staff show parents prefer full-time, in person class in the fall while staff preferred a hybrid learning approach.
The report shows 7,600 parents and 1,900 staff members took the survey. The majority of respondents said they had elementary-age children.
The school district asked the question, ‘If today was the first day of school, I would prefer’ and listed the options of:
-Full-time in person
-Combination of in person and online
-Virtual, 100% distance learning
The majority of parents went for full-time classes (49.16%) with the hybrid approach coming in second (32.80%) and virtual coming in last (18.05%).
