News Release: Los Angeles Unified and Verizon Reach Agreement to Provide Unlimited Internet to All Students Currently Lacking Access


LOS ANGELES – MARCH 23, 2020 – Los Angeles Unified School District and Verizon announced today that they have reached an agreement to provide Internet connectivity for all students who have no Internet connectivity at home. This agreement is a critical component in the district’s plan for students to continue learning as campuses remain closed in response to COVID-19. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
 
“The digital divide is very real, as many as 100,000 of our students lack access to the internet at home,” Superintendent Austin Beutner said. “We must find a way for all students to continue to learn while schools are closed and this partnership with Verizon will help to do that.”
 
“Access to distance learning and reliable connectivity is a critical component to the success of the LAUSD’s mission,” said Andrés Irlando, Senior Vice President & President Public Sector and Verizon Connect at Verizon. “Verizon is proud to partner with LAUSD to help bridge the digital divide and keep students connected to their teachers, schools and each other during this unprecedented time.”

Support for Children Birth to 5 (Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers with disabilities)
In order to supplement the learning and to promote student and parent engagement we are offering Creative Curriculum Learning Games in English and Spanish. The Learning games are designed to build skills that lead to successful, lifelong learning for a child.

The Learning Games support the Creative Curriculum which is the Los Angeles Unified adopted preschool curriculum. The games are easy to grasp yet rich with information. Children benefit the most when the important adults in their lives-their parents, caregivers, teachers are working together to support learning and growth. Families show an increased awareness of their child’s abilities, growth and development during the journey of the Learning Games. This is an excellent tool to promote engagement. This valuable resource will support learning and student/parent engagement.
