PA Broadband Survey

In an effort to identify the level of Internet access and connectivity that residents have

within our school district community, we are asking that you complete a short survey.

The data collected will greatly assist our school district with obtaining local, state and

federal broadband funding to provide additional resources to our students and families.

Thank you in advance for your time in taking this survey!
