DCSD Student Access Survey

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 Columbia Elementary 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 678-874-0702.  

Let’s get new devices for our children!
