In April, Worcester Public Schools Superintendent, Maureen Binienda, identified technology – particularly Chromebooks for students – as a primary area of need during the shift to remote learning during the global pandemic. The district is working hard to meet the needs of both students and teachers during this unprecedented challenge, and devices are essential to connect students to their teachers and classmates.
WEDF launched the Connected Kids campaign to raise funds for the Chromebooks needed to ensure equitable access to learning opportunities for Worcester’s students.
Beyond the pandemic, the Chromebooks purchased will develop students’ technology fluency and ensure access to digital learning and computer science curricula.
Your support is most appreciated!
