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!
