Technology & Internet Access for All Students
Ensuring equity, access and support for all SVSD students includes making sure all families have a device and internet access. This is necessary for students to access learning opportunities online and stay connected with their teachers.
The District has been lending laptops to families of students in grades K-5 who did not have a way for their student to access online learning from home, based on those who responded to the district's survey regarding this need. If you missed this opportunity and still need assistance with a device, please email SVSDinfo@svsd410.org as soon as possible. NOTE: Earlier this year, all SVSD students in grades 6-12 were assigned laptops for use at home.
The District has placed an order for hot spot devices to help families who requested assistance with internet service, however the estimated delivery date is mid-April. In the meantime, Comcast is offering special deals in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. If you have not indicated that you require assistance with internet service, please email SVSDinfo@svsd410.org. You will be contacted when hot spot devices become available.
