Phoenix Distributes Thousands of Laptops to Local Schoolshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/education/1715Education1/20/2021 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1715/Newsroom_Education_013.jpgPhoenix Distributes Thousands of Laptops to Local Schools<div class="ExternalClass44A6C10A341A40788A6D64D862FAA45C"><html> <p>To keep students connected and ready for distance learning, the city of Phoenix and School Connect have partnered to provide internet-enabled laptops to assist local schools in closing the technology gap. </p> <p>"The digital divide has only been amplified by the current COVID-19 crisis. It is more crucial than ever to provide our students, families and educators with the tools they need to continue learning, despite interruptions to traditional in-person schooling," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. "With the distribution of approximately 10,000 devices, I'm proud the city has stepped up to make distanced learning more manageable, accessible and equitable."</p> <p>As the pandemic continues, the digital divide has become even more challenging for local school districts. One issue is that devices and laptops are often returned to schools damaged. The laptops provided by this partnership will help schools achieve and maintain a 1:1 student-to-device ratio for grades K-12. </p> <p>"School Connect and Scottsdale Bible Church are grateful to partner with the city to make it possible for students to have equitable access to online resources," said Tracey Beal, Executive Director, School Connect. "Every laptop purchased will enable the students to achieve academic success using the technology they need."  </p> <p>The Phoenix City Council approved $2 million in CARES Act funding and School Connect received a $1 million donation from Scottsdale Bible Church to purchase the devices. The laptops will become the property of the school districts who will be responsible for creating guidelines for issuing, maintaining and monitoring the student devices. </p> <p>Phoenix has implemented a variety of measures to help address the local digital divide, from providing <a href="/newsroom/housing/1406" target="_blank"><span lang="EN">devices to families and seniors</span></a> in local housing facilities to expanding <a href="/newsroom/information-technology-services/1551" target="_blank"><span lang="EN">mobile Wi-Fi access</span></a> in the community. <br></p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/educationNewseducationEducation

Cloth masks with clear windows for visible expressions are a priority for teachers who have students with hearing impairments, a disability, learning English as a second language, or learning to read. Regular cloth masks were also ordered to allow for continued use throughout the school year. </p> <p>“It’s imperative that school administrators and educators are equipped with the resources they need to invite our kids back into safe school environments,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Schools are bedrock institutions for Phoenix families - providing meals, health services, and a safe place for kids while parents are working.” </p> <p>Phoenix is working with local school districts to help ensure that there will be a strong supply of PPE to keep students and educators safe. Other supplies that were ordered include 1,500 gallons of hand sanitizer and 38,000 isolation gowns. </p> <p>“Our hope is that by providing PPE and sanitizer, we can ease the burden as they adapt to an enormous shift in service delivery for our community,” said Mayor Gallego.</p> <p>As Phoenix school districts begin to transition to in-class instruction, the city understands the importance each school is placing on the health and safety of their students, staff, and educators.</p> <p>The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation is that schools include the following in their reopening plans for in-person classes: cloth face coverings for students, teachers and staff, no handling of common items, frequent handwashing and regular deep-cleaning of highly touched surfaces in school facilities.<br> <br>Distribution of the PPE to schools began today at the Phoenix Convention Center.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/educationNewseducationEducation
