Dear Community Members,
On Thursday, November 19, our District worked with Computers 2 San Diego Kids (C2SDK) to provide affordable technology to our South Bay families. C2SDK is a non-profit organization that recycles desktops and laptops from various companies then refurbishes the hard drive, providing Microsoft Office, Adobe and a one year warranty for each device.
C2SDK provides training at the Otay Mesa/Nestor Branch Library on the fourth Saturday of each month and technical support to each beneficiary.
We had over two hundred applicants approved in the process and over one hundred attended on the day of the event. Families were provided with the opportunity to select from three styles of refurbished computers ranging between $50 and $150, with Cox Communications present offering Internet service at a nominal cost. Families unable to attend the distribution event will receive a letter from C2SDK and will have 30 days to pick up their device. We were excited with the participation and will host another event in March 2016 for our SBUSD families.
Thank you to the Educational Services team for organizing this event. Congratulations to all the students and their families on receiving this important educational tool!
Katie McNamara, Ed.D.
