Due to the unpredictableness of the coronavirus pandemic and the effects it has on the health of our schools, Minden Public Schools is taking proactive measures to plan for possible school closures. Moving forward from what we learned last spring during the long term school closure, we know that having an understanding of our family's internet access/availability to connect virtually is very important. We are asking parents to login to PowerSchool and complete the short 6 question survey found under forms. The Digital Equity Survey will help our teachers understand the impact that home digital access has on learning, it will help them to target available resources and determine the most effective solutions for our students. ' Please take the time to complete this survey so we can continue to give our students the best available options for education in any environment. If you need instructions on how to login to PowerSchool you can find those instructions on our school webpage under "NEWS" at the bottom of the page as well as Facebook and Twitter. We are asking that you complete this survey for EACH student you have enrolled in Minden Public Schools.
