    Updated Nov. 13, 2020

    This focus group guide contains sections that are adaptable for your local context. This tool is intended to help the moderator obtain more in-depth information about perceptions and experiences of mitigation strategies used to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when schools are in in-person learning mode. The tool is intended for government professionals in public health or education, school district administrators, or administrators of K-12 schools who are interested in conducting their own data collection. It may also be adapted for other settings. Local Institutional Review Board (IRB) guidelines should be explored and implemented as required prior to conducting focus group activities and/or data collection activities.

    • Potential focus group participants could include school or school district administrators, school faculty and staff, school-age children, or parents or guardians of school-age children.

    • Each individual focus group should be made up of similar individuals, so the number of focus groups will depend on how many different types of groups from which you want to gather information.

    • Each individual focus group should include a manageable number of participants (generally no more than 8-10, but potentially fewer if virtual) and should not exceed 120 minutes.

    • Focus groups can be conducted by phone, web conference or in person (ensuring appropriate COVID-19 prevention strategies are in place).
