BrightBytes Survey - We could win another Laptop Cart!!!

We could win another laptop cart for our students if we have the largest teacher, parent, and student participation in the BrightBytes survey. So if you could take about five minutes to complete the survey we would really appreciate it. There is more information and the link below. Thanks!!!!

Keller ISD is partnering with BrightBytes technology survey to give a voice to the different communities (parents, teachers and students) at each campus. The data collected will help shape educational technology implementation as well as a planning tool for future professional learning. The short anonymous survey will allow each campus to have access to their own data for planning purposes and identify tracks and trends in their data

In order to comply with House Bill 5 measures we have to collect stakeholders perceptions relating to digital learning opportunities in Keller ISD.

The survey window concludes on Friday, December 31, 2015.
Parents will be able to access the BrightBytes online survey from their students campus webpage. You may also click here to access the link.
