Student Device Survey

Hello Evansdale families!  We have exciting news!  The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Emergency Connectivity Fund has provided funds for internet services and devices for students who lack sufficient access for remote learning.   


But - We need to hear from you first!   


Each Evansdale family is being asked to complete the DCSD Student Access Survey. Survey responses will be used to determine the connectivity needs for our school district and to purchase devices.  A link to the survey has been placed on our school website and sent to you by your child's teacher. If you have questions or need assistance completing the survey, call the school at 678-874-2702.


Let’s get new devices for our children!

Our School Choice Open Enrollment process is well underway, with over 20, 000 applications submitted thus far, this is nearly 5,000 more than were submitted this time last year! However, we do realize there are families continuing to experience difficulty with their submission. In an effort to provide additional support, our Call Center hours will be extended to 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from January 24 to February 11, 2022. Please call
678-676-0050 for support with your application. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this situation. 

School Choice Open Enrollment
