Digital Equity Survey
New York Stated Education Department (NYSED) has made promoting educational digital equity as a top priority, as such they are requiring school district’s to report home access to the internet. Student home access to the Internet has become fundamental for schools across the nation as they plan strategies for continuous learning. To better serve students, families, and educators, it is imperative for NYSED to have access to data as reported by public school districts, and maintain an accurate and complete picture of the state of digital equity for each individual student, grades Kindergarten through 12, to provide confidence in understanding the true levels of a student’s access to the Internet as well as the devices they use. To collect this data they are requesting families fill out a Digital Equity Survey for each student enrolled in school.
