Household Technology Access Survey

If you haven't filled out the state’s Technology Access Survey, please do so before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, June 24.


Survey link: http://bit.ly/iowatechsurvey


The survey should take no longer than five minutes to complete and will help the state to better understand the specific technology needs of PK-12 and postsecondary learners. The information will help us determine how to best use the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER), which focuses on providing and expanding broadband access and improving access to technology in other ways.
