Broadband Internet Survey

The North Central PA Regional Planning and Development Commission has received Funding that will provide them an opportunity to identify and work towards resolving unserved and underserved Broadband internet in our area.  We are requesting help from the Students, Parents, and Staff of the Punxsutawney Area School District to please take time out of their busy schedules to compete the survey. We would like as many people as possible to complete the survey, but especially the Parents/Students who live in the more rural areas of the district where internet is less prevalent. To access the survey, please click on this announcement's headline on the PASD homepage or visit our LATEST NEWS section.
