Jyväskylä’s Basic Education department carried out a survey to find out parent and guardians’ views on the distance learning provision offered from 18 March onwards. The results were overwhelmingly positive, with schools and teachers receiving praise for the way they have responded to the unusual circumstances.

Some respondents suggested collating examples of best practice to shape in-school teaching in future, while others requested more clarity on distance learning methods and channels. We would like to thank all 3,921 respondents for their contribution. The results will be used to develop our services in the future.

More than 97 percent of Jyväskylä’s basic education pupils and students were studying at home from 18th of  March until 14th of  May. Instead of a digital leap, the schools had to make a triple leap in just a few days. As a result, the City was able to arrange home schooling for over 12,000 pupils and students.
