Thanks to the generous support of our partners, Get Our Kids Connected is closing the digital divide and giving greater access to Atlanta Public Schools students.
Atlanta Public Schools (APS) has partnered with Comcast to launch the Get Our Kids Connected campaign to support thousands of students attending APS who do not have an internet connection and/or appropriate equipment in their home. This creates a significant disadvantage to academic progress and consequent economic mobility that is only exacerbated by community emergencies like the current COVID-19 situation.
Eligible students will receive 12 months of free high-speed internet and/or a free laptop that they can keep forever. If you know an APS student who needs internet service or a laptop, please complete an intake form at https://tinyurl.com/GOKCform. Eligible families will be contacted directly with next steps. To learn more, please email email@example.com or call 404 802 KIDS (5437).
For $300, contributors can give the gift of connectivity, which will provide students with a laptop and an internet connection for 12 months. APS expects to serve thousands of students as a result of generous donations and surpassing our initial fundraising goal.
