Virginia Speak Up Survey is available now!
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has partnered with Project Tomorrow to administer surveys in the areas of educational technology. The Virginia Speak Up surveys are a semi-customized set of questions for students, educators, administrators, and parents. Schools and districts will be able to access their own data for planning purposes. Speak Up is an annual research project conducted by Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit group that collects and reports on the views of K-12 students, teachers, administrators, and parents on education and technology.
To get started with the Virginia Speak Up, designate a local school division Virginia Speak Up administrator who will register with Project Tomorrow. Once the administrator has completed the form, the Speak Up team will email customized links for the school division’s schools. We have developed a virtual welcome packet including general information about the project, instructions for the surveys, ideas for how you can use your data, promotional materials to help you spread the word about the project to your school(s), and more. Surveys are available from October 26th, 2023, to January 31, 2024. If you are new to Speak Up, we hope this webpage helps answer any questions you may have.
Questions may be directed to Calypso Gilstrap, Associate Director, by phone at (804) 750-8708 or via email at Calypso.Gilstrap@doe.virginia.
