WCSD survey will help evaluate technology in households

The closure of school’s across Pennsylvania is nearing two weeks and will extend at least through the first week of April.

Officials at Warren County School District are trying to evaluate the technology available to students’ households in order to determine how they could deliver resources during the shut-down.

“The Warren County School District has created a technology survey to help us to understand the technologies available in our students’ homes,” Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Eric Mineweaser. “The survey information will help us as we plan for the enrichment and review of all our students.”

“We ask that one parent or guardian per household complete the technology survey,” Mineweaser said.

The survey will be available through email, the district’s website — www.wcsdpa.org — and on the district and school Facebook pages. Information about the survey was distributed in a Wednesday call blast.

“For those who do not have internet or Facebook access, paper copies of the survey will be made available at each of our food serving sites beginning on Thursday, March 26,” Mineweaser said. “If you cannot make it to a food serving site or do not have the means to complete the survey online, you may also call your child’s building administrator, and they will complete the survey for you via a telephone call.”

“The district will use the survey data to offer a variety of online resources for different grade levels and content areas for our students to work on while at home,” Mineweaser said. “Additionally, offline resources will be prepared for those who do not have internet or computer accessibility at home.”

“Please note that the online and offline resources are considered review and enrichment activities and do not impact your child’s grade during the school closure,” Mineweaser said.

District officials are asking one member of as many households as possible complete the survey by noon, Friday, March 27.
