wifi logo Family Broadband / Internet Survey
Without Internet access and connected devices, many students in our communities lack the ability to participate in remote learning and complete homework after the school day has ended. In an effort to identify these gaps, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and Penn State Extension have teamed up to conduct a short survey. The data collected will greatly assist our schools 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!
Our schools will be having Solomon Disney Day to benefit A Moment of Magic Foundation. Kylee McGrane is the Founder and Executive Director of A Moment of Magic Foundation. She is a WBASD Graduate! Their mission is to restore the magic of believing at a time when a child needs to “just-be-a-kid” and to remind them to be BRAVE, STRONG, and FEARLESS! Since 2014 our volunteers have provided programming to 85 hospitals, collaborated with 129 nonprofit organizations and restored the magic into the lives of over 100,000 children worldwide suffering from cancer and other medical situations.

Students are encouraged to dress in Disney/Marvel/Pixar themed clothing. We asked those students participating to bring $1.00 as a donation to A Moment of Magic Foundation.
Community Hero Day Solomon Celebrates Our Community Heroes!
