    Dear Parents/Guardians:

     

    District 196 schools are in the early stages of implementing the new learning and technology plan designed to give our students a dynamic learning experience.

     

    I am inviting you to take an online survey to gather information about your ability to access technology at home, your skills in using technology and your perception of the technology environment provided in our schools. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will provide us a baseline to better understand the connection between technology use and student achievement as we move forward with the implementation of the district’s learning and technology plan. Future surveys will allow us to monitor progress and determine areas of need, both in our schools and district-wide.

     

    The survey was developed by BrightBytes, an educational software company, and can be accessed here:  http://www.BByt.es/C72EP.  It will be open for parent responses until October 31, 2014.

     

    Thank you for taking the time to help us. Your participation will make a difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of our students’ technology access, skills and environment.
