Student Access to Technology

As part of its distance learning guidance for K-12 schools, the California Department of Education has provided guidance on how to support students' access to technology. This guidance includes key considerations for providing equitable access and a continuum of options. Depending on the extent to which students have access to devices and internet at home, LEAs should assess whether an e-learning/distance learning strategy would provide the most meaningful educational opportunity for students and, if so, steps they can take to ensure equitable access.
