2023-2024 Digital Equity Survey

2023-2024 Digital Equity Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians:

With the goal of understanding, investigating, and promoting educational equity, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is requesting that parents/guardians complete a Digital Equity Survey for each student in grades K - 12. This survey will collect information about student access to devices and internet access in their places of residence.

The next step in that process is for you to complete the survey on a Google Form with a few questions about your child's access to devices and internet access at home. The form is available on the district website and the link is in the letter below. The information collected with this survey will support the Hicksville Public Schools to obtain and plan for additional technology devices and opportunities for access.

If you have any questions about this process or would like to share more information about your student's technology access, please contact the Technology Office at the number listed below.

If you need to find your child’s student number, please check in PowerSchool or contact your child’s main office. Please be sure to accurately enter this number in question 4 on the Google Form survey.

To assist us in this process, please answer each question on the Google Form survey by Friday, January 31, 2024.

Thank you for your time and cooperation.

Daniel L. Friedman
