  • Speak Up: Let Your Voice Be Heard!

    Posted by BES Admin on 10/10/2019

    Be part of the conversation! Speak Up, a national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, provides an easy way for district stakeholders to share their views on technology and learning with St. Mary Parish administrators. Your survey answers can affect local decisions about technology, as well as contribute to the national dialogue about educational technology. 

    Voluntary participation from educators, staff, parents/guardians, students, and community members in this survey will help us answer important questions about student technology use inside and outside the classroom and about your views concerning key issues impacting the education of our students. 

    Since 2003, Project Tomorrow has collected and shared the viewpoints of more than 5.7 million participants through its yearly survey. All responses are 100% confidential, and no identifying information is collected about/from any participant. 

    Taking the survey is easy! (approximately 20 minutes)

    1. Open the Speak Up e-flyer in Peachjar OR visit our Project Tomorrow: Speak Up webpage for all school-site survey links. Berwick Elementary's survey can be found here.
    2. Select the right survey for you: 
      • Student in Grades 3-5, 6-8, or 9-12
      • Parent (in English or Spanish)
      • School Employee (Teacher, School Administrator, District Administrator, Librarian, Technology Leader, Other School/District Staff)
      • Member of the Community and Business Partner

    The Speak Up survey will be available through November 1, 2019.
