Long Beach Unified, city officials to launch childhood experience survey

Long Beach Unified and the city’s Department of Health and Human Services announced they are launching a childhood experiences survey, the first in the city’s history, according to the Press-Telegram.

Beginning this month, the survey will be sent to parents and guardians of students currently enrolled in kindergarten. The purpose of the survey will be for officials to better understand the challenges facing families with young children, according to the newspaper.

The survey’s findings will then inform new strategies related to children and family services in Long Beach.

“Having access to data specific to Long Beach will build more equitable and culturally inclusive support systems for all young children and families in our city,” Kelly Colopy, director of the city’s health department, said in a statement.
