FRSS 93 ( is a sample survey that provides national estimates on the availability and use of educational technology in public school districts during Fall 2008. This is one of a set of three surveys (at the district, school, and teacher levels) that collected data on a range of educational technology resources. The study was conducted by having school superintendents fill out surveys via the web or by mail. Public school districts were sampled. The study's weighted response rate was 90 percent. Key statistics produced from FRSS 93 were information on networks and internet capacity, technology policies, district-provided resources, teacher professional development, and district-level leadership for technology. Respondents reported the number of schools in the district with a local area network and the number of schools with each type of district network connection. The survey collected information on written district policies on acceptable student use of various technologies. Other survey topics included employment of staff responsible for educational technology leadership and the type of teacher professional development offered or required by districts for educational technology. Respondents gave their opinions on statements related to the use of educational technology in the instructional programs in their districts.
