2019 superintendent surveys: What you should know about every school district in RI

Back to School

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – As students get ready for school to begin, Eyewitness News asked superintendents from every district to identify their district’s biggest strengths and challenges heading into the new school year.

New Shoreham and North Providence superintendents did not respond to our survey.

Each school leader was asked five questions:

1. What’s the number one thing parents and students should know about this district this year?

2. What is the biggest challenge your district faces?

3. What is the vaccination rate for your district and what is your policy for opting out?  Have you seen a spike or decline in the number of parents opting out over the last two years?

4. Some school districts in the state are banning electronic devices/cell phones. What is your current policy? Do you have plans to also ban electronic devices? If so, why?

5. Tell us something nobody knows about your district.

So how did they respond?
