Lakewood School District Closes Digital Divide

After months of solicitations and Requests For Proposals, the Lakewood public school district has successfully obtained a large number of devices for its students, ameliorating the “digital divide” that exists throughout the United States as to students who have access to technology and those who don’t, a divide often based on income.

The District has received 2,000 ASUS 14″ Chromebooks from Staples, and another 1,600 are in transit with delivery expected on January 28th.

The Chromebooks can and will be utilized by the Lakewood High School, Lakewood Middle School, Oak Street School, Clifton Avenue Grade School, Ella G. Clarke Middle School, Piner Elementary, and Spruce Street School for state assessments, district benchmarks, daily classroom instruction, as well as remote instruction.

The closing of this digital divide represents a massive step forward in the district’s ability to provide a thorough and efficient education to all its students, regardless of their financial circumstances.

    Finally!! Maybe this will help the schools go virtual which is needed right now. There has been a Covid notification email almost every single day for two weeks!! There were over 10 cases in the middle school last week. Parents are sending their kids to school sick, and risking the lives of everyone else. This is not okay. Now that we have computers, please do the smart thing and close!!!!
