Dear Liverpool CSD Families:
Over the past few years, events like the COVID-19 Pandemic have highlighted how important access to technology, such as the Internet and electronic devices, is to student learning. Student home access to the Internet has become an integral and fundamental aspect of schools across the nation as they plan strategies for continuous learning. Ensuring students have equal access to technology as well as the training needed to navigate digital tools is referred to as Digital Equity.
To better serve students, families, and educators, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is conducting a Digital Equity Survey for all public school districts, charter schools, and BOCES across the state. The purpose of this survey is to understand and promote educational equity, including digital equity for all students in New York State. The data collected from this survey also will aid the Liverpool Central School District’s understanding and support of students and families within our district.
The Liverpool Central School District will collect data for the Digital Equity Survey from Friday, December 16, 2022, to Thursday, January 26, 2023. The survey consists of nine questions created by NYSED. All questions must be answered for a completed survey. One survey is to be filled out for each child you have enrolled in the district. Families can access the Digital Equity Survey by:
Using their SchoolTool Parent Portal (directions are included)
Included is a survey guidance document created by NYSED to assist parents/guardians with their responses. Thank you for taking the time to complete the Digital Equity Survey.
