Laptop Distribution Program Sparks Pre-K Students’ Education

Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho and School Board Member Dr. Dorothy Bendross Mindingall were on hand yesterday morning to help distribute laptops and hotspot devices to 39 Pre-Kindergarten students at Orchard Villa Elementary School.  Two years ago, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) launched an initiative to eliminate the digital divide in elementary schools.  

This year, 450 Pre-K students at 20 elementary schools with populations that demonstrate economic and academic need will get a jumpstart on their future when they receive an electronic device and free Internet access provided by Sprint to use at their homes as part of the CONNECT@HOME project.
