Electronic technologies and online tools play an increasingly important role in school district communication and instruction. We want to continue to embrace useful digital advances, but realize that not all families have the same access to internet and technologies. Please help us assess how readily available technology and internet access are for our students by completing a short survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/fnsbsd-technology by Feb. 6. Printed copies will be sent home with elementary students and mailed to secondary student families beginning the week of Jan. 16. Please only complete one survey per family.Technology Survey
