Illinois School District Technology Survey

2020 Illinois School District Technology Survey

The Illinois School District Technology Survey was developed by the Learning Technology Center in collaboration with the Illinois State Board of Education and was administered from July to October of 2020. The survey was completed by 451 public school districts, 53% of the total number of districts in the state.

Methodology

The survey was completed by 451 public school districts, 53% of the total number of districts in the state. Most responses were submitted as a part of two Illinois State Board of Education grant applications that specifically required survey completion as a prerequisite: the Digital Equity Grant and Digital Professional Learning Grant. Other districts that completed the survey did so voluntarily.

Demographics

Surveys were completed by Superintendents or other district leaders (49.3%), technology leaders (33.1%), building administrators (13.3%), and others in positions that provided an understanding of the technology and digital learning landscape within the entire district. The districts represented by the data reside in 89 of the 101 Illinois counties and have a total of 1,250,157 students enrolled during the FY21 school year. Submissions came from districts with an Evidence-Based Funding Level of Tier 1 (64.2%), Tier 2 (30.6%), Tier 3 (2.1%), and Tier 4 (3.1%).
