All students need a computing device they can use at home with internet access. Ideally schools will provide this resource, but in many cases they cannot.
With our focus on elementary grades we have found that students do well with tablets. The most reliable and cost effective tablet we have found to date is the Amazon Kindle Fire 7 or 8 inch tablet. Amazon often has them on sale which makes them even more affordable. We are working to raise grant funds to buy more tablets and will make them available as needed and as resources permit.
Internet access is also required. Many providers offer low cost Internet for qualifying families. A good resource for more information is Everyone On (www.everyoneon.org)
Many local businesses provide free Wi-Fi. Libraries are also an option. Families can be creative in finding a solution.
