Dear parent/guardian,

We are excited to announce that the Randolph County School System is participating in Speak Up 2017 from October 16th through January 19th! This survey will help us answer questions, such as:

• How are our students using technology for learning in and out of school?

• How important are the use of technology to our teachers and parents? What types of technology would our teachers like and how would they use it in the classroom?

• Do our ideas about technology align with our students’ parents?

Speak Up, a national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, provides an easy way for students, parents, and educators to share their views on technology and learning with the Randolph County School System. Your input informs our decisions about technology, as well as contributes to the national dialogue about educational technology. Since 2003, Project Tomorrow has collected and shared the viewpoints of more than 5 million students, educators and parents. All responses are 100% confidential. No identifying information is collected about/from any participant.

As a nonprofit educational organization, Project Tomorrow provides Speak Up as a free tool for all schools to use – allowing us to conduct this research while also keeping our resources focused in the classrooms. Uwharrie Ridge 6-12 receives our results with state and national comparisons, providing us with valuable data that can be used for our strategic planning, professional development and budgeting plans during the school year.

Taking the survey is easy!

Follow these instructions to take the survey:

1. Visit speakup.tomorrow.org

2. Select your group (e.g. parents, educators)

3. Search for your school by entering your zip code or by selecting NC and selecting your Uwharrie Ridge 6-12 from the list.
