See how we're doing
Normally, when older computers are replaced by newer ones, the old equipment is sent to surplus. Instead, here's what happens now through the Latops2Kids program:
Models of laptops/computers vary depending on availability. The Laptops2Kids program was designed to provide computers to middle and high school students, better providing them the tools they need, and to make the ultimate goal of graduation. Priorities for computers go to students grades 9-12, followed in order by middle school and elementary students. Students must be currently enrolled in Tacoma Public Schools, and qualify for free/reduced lunch or meet the federal poverty guidelines - and must not have previously received a laptop though this program.
We do not have the means for student to request a specific model.
We will also be adding desktop computers to the offerings during the 2017-18 school year. Once we begin production of desktop units, and due to the limited number of laptops available, students in grades K-5 will be more limited in options. Elementary families with receive 1 computer per household. If the family has wired internet access in their home, they will receive a desktop computer; complete with computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse and power cord. It will be the family's responsibility to provide an internet cable. Middle and High school students with wired internet access in the home can opt for a desktop computer if they prefer.
How do I set up my laptop/computer?
Efforts to better assure Tacoma students have what they need to graduate!
Laptops2Kids gives students laptops and life skills (11/30/16)
... Since Laptops2Kids started two years ago, the district has distributed more than 1,100 laptops to students who qualify for free and reduced lunch or meet federal poverty guidelines. The laptops, previously used by teachers or as classroom computers, would land in district surplus without the program.
Foss High School students clear the computer hard drive to remove teacher information, thoroughly clean the machines, replace defunct keyboards and prepare the computers for a new operating system, purchased by the Foundation for Tacoma Students.
Tacoma students can apply for a laptop by submitting an application form on the website www.tacomaschools.org/laptops2kids. You can access the website from any computer, including computer kiosks in school offices.
