The purpose of the Summer 2021 City of New Haven School Parent and Student Internet Connectivity (PSIC) Survey was to help describe community needs relating to technology and home internet service, especially those related to participation in remote learning. Although technology and internet access have always been important for parents and students in K-12 schools, the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of ensuring equitable access to online learning. In 2021, the City of New Haven Economic Development Administration commissioned DataHaven to develop a pilot survey project to describe current perceptions among New Haven Public School parents using a combination of an electronic screener survey and live telephone interviews. The survey was fielded from July through September 2021, in two parts.
