NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Department of Education needs help from parents to learn what their students need while they're out of the classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It all starts with an online survey for parents to tell the state what areas could use improvement and how resources can be better utilized not only during this unprecedented time but for the future, in case something like this were to happen again.

Schools all around the nation are eligible for relief money from the federal CARES act. The government set aside $30.75 billion for education.

With the survey, the state wants to know what parents feel is important to continue their child's education so the department can make a plan and apply for the funds.

The survey will be open for one week and can be accessed by clicking here.
