Students, Educators & Parents Speak Up!

Get the pulse of your stakeholders about the use of technology for learning through Speak Up, a National Research Project. The online survey is open to students, educators (including future educators) and parents at all schools in your district; it’s quick and easy to get involved. The Maine Department of Education has coordinated with Project Tomorrow to pre-register all Maine schools for their annual Speak Up survey. We encourage students, staff, and parents to participate in the survey.

Why participate in Speak Up this year?
Speak Up provides a unique way for the ideas and opinions of our stakeholders to have an impact on state level initiatives and in federal policies and programs. Each spring, Project Tomorrow shares the national Speak Up findings with the U.S. Congress, Department of Education, other federal agencies and policy research groups and associations. There is no cost to participate; no limit on the number of surveys that can be submitted; and all data collected is 100% confidential. Last year over 6,541 schools and 1,340 districts participated. Be a part of this national movement to include more authentic stakeholder views in education discussions!

How do you participate in Speak Up?
There are Speak Up surveys for your students (grade level appropriate K-12), teachers, district administrators, principals, librarians and parents. All of the Speak Up surveys are online and accessible 24/7 from any Internet connected computer. Project Tomorrow has already registered our schools to participate, all you have to do is encourage your students, teachers, parents and administrators to go online and take the 20 minute survey
