BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Preparing for what could be an extended lockdown, the Palm Beach County School District is urgently asking for your help in determining who needs technology assistance — computers/internet access — to learn at home.
From the Palm Beach County School District:
Parents: The Palm Beach County School District is trying to determine your child’s technology needs IN CASE the District decides it is in the best interest of students and staff to remain closed beyond spring break.
Last week you were emailed a Home Technology survey to determine if your child has access to a computer and if you have Wi-Fi. That survey is due back on Wednesday, March 18.
If you did not receive the survey, click right here, or you can find it on the School District’s website at palmbeachschools.org/coronavirus. Please call the District’s Coronavirus Information hotline at (561) 969-5840 if you need help filling out the survey.
Additionally, if you don’t have Wi-Fi, please be aware that Comcast is offering FREE Wifi for two months. For students who don’t have Wi-Fi at home, this will help them receive online instruction if necessary.
