PS 177 - STUDENT DIGITAL RESOURCES

Annually, school districts and charter schools are required to conduct a survey concerning student digital resources and Internet access in their homes. Required by Commissioner’s Regulation 155.17, the Student Digital Resources and Access data provides information about student access to devices and internet at their place of residence. It is imperative that districts, BOCES, charter schools, and the New York State Education Department maintain an updated, accurate, complete picture of the digital access status for each individual student. The data will help identify specific needs and target resources. The data should also be used at local level for instructional and programmatic decision-making.

Information is reported to the State Education Department through the Student Information Repository System (SIRS). The count of enrolled includes students enrolled at any time during the school year in that location. The following data points are collected by school districts by surveying students’ households.

SCHOOL PROVIDED DEVICE

Data are based on the number of responses to this question.

Indication of whether the school or district issued the student a dedicated school- or district-owned device for the student’s use during the school year.
