The Arkansas Task Force on Quality Digital Learning Providers was formed through Act 939. The primary purpose of the Task Force is to make recommendations to improve the quality and educational benefit of digital learning for Arkansas students. In an effort to gain information toward that goal, the Task Force is requesting educators, parents, and students in grades 7-12 to share experience with digital learning courses and provide input. School districts are asked to share the survey with local educators, parents and students.
Participation in this survey is anonymous and should take 5-10 minutes. Survey data will be disaggregated by school/district. This data will be used to guide the ongoing work of the Task Force in the creation of a required report to the Arkansas State Board of Education.
We encourage all impacted stakeholders to respond to the survey. It is optimal that schools share the survey with local educators, parents and students.
The survey will be open until Friday, December 8, 2017.
