Parent Survey: State Educational Technology Needs Assessment for 2016

Dear Lyon County School District Parent,

We are asking for your participation in the biennial State Educational Technology Needs Assessment for 2016 (SETNA 2016). The Nevada Legislature requires a technology assessment every two years, which directly influences state educational technology initiatives.

The thoughts and perceptions of parents are extremely important in determining the educational technology needs of school districts across the state.

Please click on the following link to complete the brief (9-question) survey:

Spanish version (Espanol):

Parents, please complete the parent survey by clicking on the above link, or typing it in to a web browser exactly how it appears. Your responses are confidential and extremely important, as the information you provide will be included in the report to the Nevada State Legislature, which has a direct effect on how technology needs are funded in your district and throughout the state.

Your responses will provide necessary and important information to those who decide how and what to fund to meet the technology needs of Nevada’s public education system.

The survey is accessible from computers, tablets, and most mobile devices.  If these options are not available, please contact your school and they will set up a time when you can use their technology to complete the survey.  Public libraries also have computers with Internet connections that can be used to complete this survey.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Raggio Research Center Research Team.

Thank you for your participation on this important project!
