Families reminded to complete digital equity survey

To better serve families, students and educators, New York State Education Department (NYSED) is asking parents and guardians to provide feedback about their student’s home access to technology and the internet.

A digital equity survey is available for each Fayetteville-Manlius School District student within their SchoolTool account. Parents and guardians can access the survey by selecting the “User Defined” tab, which is located on a student’s SchoolTool profile.

NYSED will use survey feedback to determine school districts’ technology funding needs. 

How to access, complete and submit the survey:

  1. Log into Schooltool
    Please use the web version of SchoolTool.
    Your username is the email address that you provided to F-M. If you do not know your account information, please select “forgot password.”
