If you work in a large school district (defined by student population, say 40,000 students or more) I need your help with a quick survey. I met with the superintendent and CIO of our school district in Oklahoma today, and will have an opportunity this evening to address our school board for three minutes as a parent concerned about district overblocking of Internet websites. Specifically I need to know the names of large U.S. school districts which currently provide STUDENT access to the websites Evernote.com, Edmodo,com, Google Docs, Google Mail, and Posterous. Please complete this short Google form survey to share information about current STUDENT Internet access in your district if more than 40,000 students are served in it.

THANKS. I’ll report results of tonight’s meeting as well as this survey here and on balancedfiltering.org.

One Response to Help Needed from Urban Educators: Are Evernote, GDocs & Edmodo Blocked for Your Students?

  1. Jillbromen says:

    MPS IT department is working to move from blocked to unblocked sites. Currently any site which is labeled as social networking startes as blocked and then is opened to the district as a result of requests. MPS has adopted Google Apps, which are not blocked in the district.
