Participate in the Speak Up project survey

The Black River Falls School District is participating in the Speak Up National Research Project. The online surveys are open now through December 20.
The Speak Up National Research project annually polls K-12 students, parents and educators about the role of technology for learning in and out of school. Survey access is available to participating schools and districts free of charge. All information is 100% confidential and there is no limit to the number of surveys you can submit. Every participating school and district receives free online access to your own participant data in February 2014 including the national and state data for comparison.
In general, the Speak Up survey has three primary objectives:
1. To provide a means for local schools and districts to easily and effectively listen to and act upon the ideas of their stakeholders.
2. To provide a conduit for the voices of education stakeholders, most notably students, to inform national and/or state/provincial policies and programs.
3. To stimulate new local discussions around the use of technology within education.We would like to encourage all staff, students, parents, and community member s to take the survey to help provide us with information as we continue to assess our current technology and our future technology needs.
