"Given the increased COVID-19-related mental healthstress on the nation’s students, school-community mental health partnerships are now, more than ever, essential to the health and well-being of our young people."
The Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) conducted a Fall 2020 phone survey in Spanish of 1,323 PIQE parents to better assess how parents and families adapted and where critical areas of need remain as the pandemic continues to evolve. The Fall 2020 survey found continuing disparities in equitable access to educational instruction time and marked increases in student and familial stress that were affecting student learning during the pandemic.
"Key findings from the October 2020 survey include:
• 17% of statewide respondents indicated they do not have reliable internet or Wi-Fi t home.
• 1 in 5 families does not have their own email address.
• 50% of respondents state they do not know how to receive medical services online or by phone with the greatest disparity in Central Valley (52%)
• 62% of respondents are concerned about their student(s) emotional needs.
• 51% of respondents indicated that their stress levels are higher or much higher than normal."
