MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery Public Schools has extended the deadline for parents to submit a survey for the upcoming school year.

The deadline for completing the forms is now Monday, July 20.

Students have two options for school this year: traditional face-to-face instruction or virtual instruction.

Forms are available on the school websites for parents who choose the virtual option.

Parents who choose the face-to-face option need to complete a transportation survey to let MPS know how many children need to be transported to school.

According to Jade Jones with MPS, so far 4,700 parents have filled out forms. MPS has around 28,000 students.

The school year for MPS students will begin Aug. 10.

MPS says safety measures will be used at each school for students who are returning to classrooms.
