Does Your Child Need Technology For Remote Learning?

As schools across the city are transitioning to remote learning, the New York City Department of Education is lending out internet-enabled iPads for students who need them — for free.

Parents can fill out this request form. After reviewing and approving the request, the DOE will get in touch to discuss when and where the device can be picked up. 

Students who are the most in need will be prioritized first, and all iPads must be returned on a later date. (One device per student… obviously.)
