NYSED Digital Equity Survey

Beginning November 1, parents and guardians in the North Syracuse Central School District will be asked to fill out a student digital equity survey when logging into SchoolTool. Parents/guardians will be asked to complete one survey for each child prior to Nov. 19.

The survey is mandated by the New York State Education Department (NYSED), who will use the information collected to promote educational equality concerning digital access. 

To access the Digital Access Survey in SchoolTool, select your child and click on the User Defined Tab. From the drop-down menu, select "Digital Access Survey" and click the add icon (green plus sign), answer the 9 questions displayed, then click the Save icon (green disk).

NYSED states, “Identifying student digital equity, is essential for understanding, investigating, and promoting educational equity. 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 the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to have access to data as reported by BOCES, public school districts and charter schools, 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.”
