BrightBytes Technology Survey
In April, students in various elective classes will be completing a short survey so that we can learn more about our schoolís technology use for student learning. Our goal is to gather data that will allow us to better plan for instruction and resources. This BrightBytes survey is anonymous and is being funded through Appalachia IU8. If you would like to view a copy of the survey tool, please contact Mr. Abbott.
