Results from a survey developed to get feedback from parents, staff, and students for the Killeen Independent School District have been released.

With COVID-19 still a major issue of concern in Central Texas, the district wanted to see how those surveyed felt about students starting back to school this fall.

According to the district, 16,197 parents, 5,293 employees, and 1,504 secondary students responded to the survey.

Brandon Hamilton with our partners at News 10 broke down the findings.

Turns out 38 percent of those surveyed said they were comfortable with sending their children back to school, while 58 percent said they were not comfortable.

 86 percent of respondents are concerned about COVID-19 impacting their personal health and that of members of their household. According to the survey, 59 percent said they are very concerned. Only 14 percent expressed no concern.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, students were given the option to attend classes virtually online.  Many parents said they had some technical problems with those online classes, and many said they needed more resources from their child's school.

KISD Superintendent Dr. John Craft  plans on holding a press conference on July 15 to speak about the survey results.
