The SC State Department of Education (SDE) is asking schools to survey families to determine the availability of reliable Internet access.
The results of the survey will have a direct impact on our students as the state will use the data to determine where to apply funding to improve access to broadband - both in terms of actual connectivity and financial support for families in need.
We need all families to participate. If you have a neighbor without Internet access, please considerer helping them complete the survey. Likewise, as a last resort, parents may contact the school if they can't complete the form online.
This is a great opportunity for parents to establish a Parent Portal account, so you can access your student's grades and attendance!
Note - the instructions below show how to complete the survey for all of your students at once!!
Logon to the Parent Portal – https://lex4.powerschool.com.
You must use the website as forms are not yet available in the PowerSchool app.
If this is your first time using the Parent Portal, please contact your child’s school for directions. Likewise, please contact your school if you need assistance with logon issues.
In the portal, click Forms.
Under General Forms, click the link for Student Broadband Access Survey.
Complete the form ensuring to answer all required questions (marked with *).
At the bottom, you’ll have the option to Save for Later or Submit.
When you have completed the form, be sure to click Submit.
IMPORTANT – if you have more than one student in the district and the survey answers are the same for all, select the arrow beside Submit and select Submit for Family.
If you need to finish the form later, click Save for Later.
