Wraparound Needs

The student needs survey identifies key non-academic challenges students face across five domains: health, mental health, basic needs, home learning environment and enrichment activities.

In 2019, the Houston Independent School District Wraparound Services department created a student and family needs survey, which asked students, parents and teachers to identify key non-academic challenges they face across five domains: health, mental health, basic needs, home learning environment and enrichment activities.

The Kinder Institute's Houston Education Research Consortium assisted HISD's Student Support Services department in analyzing the 2019 survey results. Given the strain that the pandemic has placed on families in HISD, HERC collaborated with Student Support Services to redesign the needs assessment to cover a more comprehensive set of needs for 2021-22. In addition to answering questions about the out-of-school challenges they were facing, the revised survey also asked respondents to identify the barriers that were preventing them from accessing relevant services.
