New York Families: You can still get remote learning devices for your children!

Hi all, figured as a New Yorker, this was the easiest way for me to get the word out and around. If you have NYC public school students, you are STILL ABLE to get a device for your kids to continue Remote Learning from home. Please read the below message from the NYC Department of Education.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) has translated information into multiple languages. Please view here.

Families that want to request a device should call DOE at 718-935-5100 and choose Option 5 on the menu for help getting a device with internet connection. Or they can fill out the Remote Learning Device Request form at https://coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices. DOE will use the contact information provided on the form to reach out to the family to schedule delivery of the device.
Everyone who fills out a request form online, with a staff member, or over the phone, will be sent follow up emails and texts.
 
  • Priority will be given to students most in need.
  • All devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned.
  • There is a limit of one device per student. You must fill out a separate form for each student who needs a device.
  • There is no need to call the DOE or 311 to check on the status of the device.
 
PLEASE get your kids the technology they need! Be safe.
