Technology Survey




Our beginning of the year technology survey will be going out this week. You will be receiving this survey because you influence instruction in your current role!


Please take the time to complete the 15-20 minute survey concerning YOUR access to and use of technology for instruction. This survey is specific to YOUR experience and is anonymous. Since it is 100% anonymous it must be completed in one session and cannot be resumed. Everyone will have answers specific to their experiences. Your answers will help guide us to meet the specific technology needs of our campus. The district also uses this information to make future plans for the different technology departments.


Elementary:

We will also need students grades 3rd and up to take the survey, their survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete. We will be adding the link to the Clever portal for the students.


Middle School:

Any students can complete this survey. It will also be placed in Clever for the students.


Please be on the lookout in the next email for more information.
