The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is conducting a Digital Equity Survey for all public-school districts, charter schools, and BOCES across the state. The purpose of this survey is to understand and promote educational equity, including digital equity for all students in New York State. To accomplish this, NYSED is asking parents or guardians to complete a Digital Equity survey for each K-12 student enrolled in the district. This survey will provide information on student access to devices and internet access in their places of residence. The data collected will also help support our students and families within our district.

The survey consists of nine questions created by NYSED. One survey is to be filled out for each K-12 student you have enrolled in the district. Please note that All questions must be answered for a completed survey.

Families can access the Digital Equity Survey from Thursday, December 23, 2021, to Thursday, January 6, 2022 by

  • Login to each student Parent Portal to complete the survey. For questions to access the Parent Portal, please review the provided Parent Portal documents or e-mail parentportal@bufsd.org.  A bilingual representative will also be available Monday to Friday from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM by calling the Bilingual Hotline at 631-972-1375.
  • After completing the survey, please update each child’s Contact Verification form.

Included is a survey guidance document (in English and Spanish) created by NYSED to assist parents/guardians with their responses.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the Digital Equity Survey.
