Speak Up Survey....This is Important!!!

We take this survey every year and I know how we all feel about surveys :) but this one gives our state, system, and school a picture of where we are with technology and where we want to go. Technology is important and should be incorporated throughout our day not just to take tests with using computers and i-pads. For the students in elementary school now, 65% of jobs available for them as adults will be using technology that hasn't even been invented yet. Imagine that - what a huge task we have to give our students the best opportunities to prepare them for their future.


SO THIS IS IMPORTANT!!! Please have your students and your parents complete the survey as soon as possible. Jason and Kerry can help you in the computer lab with this. There is an easier survey to complete for the younger kids that is done as a whole group.
