Please take a moment and complete our survey about internet access for students in the Whitney Point School District.
Access to reliable internet has become very important during the COVID pandemic. New York State Education Department has required schools to survey all families to learn about their access to reliable internet for households where students reside. The concern about the lack of "digital equity" across households and areas in New York State has grown. Internet access in rural areas can be a particular challenge, and several organizations and lawmakers are looking for ways to provide more options in these locations.
Your responses to this survey will help us, as a school district, learn more about the obstacles in our community and help us strategize to improve access. It will also enable us to report accurate statistics to state and federal decision-makers about families' internet options in rural school districts. No personal information will be shared with agencies beyond the Whitney Point School District.
Thank you in advance for your help with this!
