UCDSB creates survey for parents regarding access to technology for education amid COVID-19 crisis

UPPER CANADA — The Upper Canada District School Board is working to prepare for the need for students to learn from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As much of this learning is likely to involve technology, we are reaching out to families to determine what their technology needs may be, if any. 

We are asking parents that may not have internet access at home or lack the number of devices needed for each child to engage in online learning activities, or to support their special education programming, to complete this online survey – Technology Survey for UCDSB Families – or call 613-342-0435 (toll free 1-888-593-5556) to leave call back information so that we can contact them to determine their specific needs.  

People who do have sufficient technology at home do not need to fill out the survey at this time, but can do so at a later time if their situation changes. 

We have posted this information to our website, emailed to parents and shared on social media but we are hoping that our community media can help spread the word as well in non-digital means. 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.
