With the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, education (both K-12 and collegiate programs) has shifted to online distance learning, where students must have access to the Internet to complete assignments. Historically, students who do not have access to reliable Internet use public facilities like libraries, or private businesses such as restaurants and coffee shops to get online to complete assignments.

Given the nature of this pandemic, social distancing has been determined to be the best course of action to slow the spread of the virus; and libraries and businesses are closing their doors for the current time to stop the spread. This further increases the likelihood of students falling behind on coursework, and their grades suffering.

Please complete the form on our web site on behalf of your community so that we can look into assisting your communities' needs.
