    Homework Gap Survey

     

    The State of North Carolina wants to help ensure no public school student falls into the “homework gap”—households where Internet access is limited or unavailable. To do so, the state needs to know how widespread the homework gap is and potential challenges students face in accessing digital resources.

     

    NCDPI Digital Teaching and Learning staff are conducting a survey of North Carolina households with K-12 students. We encourage you to take the survey below to help policy makers and education stakeholders design solutions to address this issue.

     

    The anonymous, short survey is available in English and Spanish (Encuesta de Accesso a Internet K-12 en el Hogar). The survey closes April 30. If you have questions, concerns or feedback, please contact the Broadband Infrastructure Office or 919.754.6695.

  • Board of Education “forgives” snow day

     

    Just in case you are wondering about the one snow day from January that had not been made up, no need to wonder anymore. The Board of Education voted during its April 10 meeting to “forgive” the day. There are enough instructional hours remaining in the school calendar; therefore, students do not have to make up the day. You may recall that students missed school on January 9 and 10 because of inclement weather, and January 24 was used to make up one of the days.
