DeLand, FL - Parents of Volusia County Schools students are being asked to complete a survey of the technology available in their home in the event that their school or schools are closed down for an extended period of time.
Community Information Specialist Frank Fitzgerald said in an email that "This is to determine how many of our students have computers, wifi, and printers available at home." He also said that the survey is a proactive measure only and there are no plans at this time to close any schools.
The survey is comprised of five questions:
-The name of the student’s school
-The grade the student is in
-If the student has wifi at home
-If the student has access to a computer/laptop
-If the student has access to a printer
Fitzgerald said that if you have more than one child to fill out a survey for each one. If you haven't received an emailed survey or don't have access to email, you're asked to contact your child's school for more information.
The short survey was emailed last night (March 9) at 6 p.m. The survey period ends on March 17, 2020, at 11:45 p.m.
