A. Introduction

This survey by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Bank seeks to collect information on national education responses to school closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The questionnaire is designed for Ministry of Education officials at central or decentralized levels in charge of school education.

The questionnaire is for all education levels except higher education and technical and vocational education and training. The analysis of the results will allow for policy learning across diverse country settings in order to better inform local/national responses and prepare for school reopening.

This is the second in a series of surveys administered to ensure that the latest (updated) information on the evolution of country responses to COVID-19 are captured. The first survey was carried out in May 2020 and covered 118 countries. Since we plan to continue our data collection activities in the future, we suggest that a focal point within the ministry should be appointed to collect and submit responses on behalf of the country. Ideally it should consist of a team of two members to ensure response continuity.

In light of the current education crisis, information on the COVID-19 education response coordinated by UNESCO with our partners is deemed urgent, so that it can better inform decision-making and practice during and after the crisis. Given the urgency, please note that we will require this round of questionnaires to be completed and submitted either online (link) or sent to
COVID-19.survey@unesco.org by 30 July 2020.

If you have any questions about this survey, please send them to the same email address, mentioned above. Thank you for your collaboration.
