In May 2020, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NH DOE) asked stakeholders to complete a needs assessment survey as part of their planning for school re-opening. The state received an overwhelming response: 56,000 responses poured in over the 5 days that the survey was open. In this blog, we share how needs assessment surveys can offer a crucial way for states to hear from a broad range of perspectives, build awareness of stakeholder views, and craft policies that address their concerns.
