Great news in computer-land: Amazon has stepped up and donated 8,200 laptops to Seattle Public Schools, to disseminate to families in need. This is not a guarantee that everyone who needs one will get one, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
SPS has also ordered hot spots and they will be available later this week. If your family is in need, please click on the link below for resources:
Another important part of this process is tech support, because let’s face it, technology is not easy for everyone. Seattle PTSA is putting together a group of parents and helpers who are willing to do some tech support with people.
Bilingual parents are especially encouraged to apply! We are doing this while SPS works on a district system. If interested, please click here:
Many thanks to the people at Seattle Council PTSA who made this possible, and thanks to our friends at Amazon!
