Home Internet Connectivity Survey


Westerly Public Schools, in an effort to better understand the needs of our student population, is requesting that students and parents take the corresponding surveys on internet connectivity in the home. This information will help guide our Strategic and Technology plans for the future to help us develop thoughtful, intentional strategies and policies that decrease inequities in digital learning.  
 
The Surveys can be found here: Surveys
For an explanation on what the digital divide is, you can visit ASCD for more information here.
