Burlington City distributes more laptops to students

Destiny Viator

BURLINGTON CITY, New Jersey (WPVI) — Students across New Jersey began a new school earlier this month relying on remote or hybrid schedules to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. But many students in the Burlington City school system still need computers.

Siobhan Moody has three kids in the Burlington City school system. Two of them are high school students who’ve spent the first two weeks of the school year learning on their smartphones.

“It’s been crazy, kind of hard to learn for school,” said Moody.

“And some stuff you can’t do on the phone,” added her daughter, freshman Yanaiah Jones.

That struggle ends Wednesday night. The district handed out another several dozen laptops to students who still didn’t have the school device.

“Our laptops have been slow to come in. As soon as they come in we’re rolling them back out,” said Superintendent John Russell with the City of

3,000 students haven’t logged on for the first week of school in Salt Lake City

Destiny Viator

And one big reason is that many still don’t have the technology needed to do so.

“I really am alarmed at how many kids don’t have access,” said Melissa Ford, the president of Salt Lake City School District’s board of education. “We can’t just leave them behind.”

Sam Quantz, chief information officer for the district’s IT department, told the school board during its meeting this week that he had 700 unfulfilled requests for computers as of Tuesday.

Those are largely in the district’s three high schools — after it prioritized getting devices to elementary and junior high kids first — and on the west side of the city. West High, for instance, has the most outstanding need, with 320 kids still needing access to technology.

East High has 200 pending requests and Highland High, Quantz said, is now mostly covered. The district doesn’t have enough computers for each student to

The Jersey City School district says it now has enough Chromebook laptops to outfit students without computer access, but a breakdown in communication between parents and schools appears to be leaving some kids offline.

Parents line up to pick up workbooks, textbooks and school supplies for their children at School 30 in Jersey City on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020.

Superintendent Franklin Walker said it’s unclear how many of the district’s approximately 30,000 students are still without computer access, but the school system has enough devices to ensure every student can participate in remote learning.

Teachers, students, parents told not to sell gadgets provided by Manila city gov’t

Destiny Viator

Teachers and students, as well as their parents, were told not to sell the gadgets and connectivity devices that the Manila city government lent them to equip them for the blended distant learning set-up. 

Division of City Schools (DCS)-Manila Superintendent Maria Magdalena Lim said the teachers and students have to return the devices in good working condition after they graduate, or when they switch schools or drop out from school, as these are still the property of the city government.

“Ang tablet ay parang pahiram lang para mapahiram sa mga bata sa distance learning ngayon, pagmamay-ari pa rin ng gobyerno (The tablets were only lent to the children to help them with the distance learning, they are still the property of the government),” she said on a live broadcast on Wednesday (Aug. 19).

She said the parents of students will be made to sign an affidavit of undertaking upon receipt

Roanoke City Public Schools readies for virtual first day as district grows short on laptops | Education

Destiny Viator

Virtual learning for elementary students will be structured throughout the day, according to Executive Director for K–5 Education Greg Johnston. This will include multiple synchronous and independent learning periods, along with breaks, lunch, recess and office hours.

The independent learning blocks will involve structure and can also involve contact with a teacher, Johnston said.

Schedules may vary by school, but will consistently involve breaks so students aren’t in front of the computer for hours at a time, he said.

Johnston said teachers will work with students on a “case-by-case basis” who are unavailable for synchronous sessions.

Middle and high school students will have fewer breaks in their day. Students will receive 15 to 30 minutes of synchronous instruction per period each day, according to Executive Director of School Improvement Julie Drewry. There will also be an “open question time” at the end of the day for students to talk with

The laptops, tablets, pocket WiFis, and SIM cards for public school students and teachers in Manila have arrived at the Manila City Hall and will be distributed next week, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso wrote on Facebook Monday night (Aug. 17).

These gadgets and connectivity devices will be used to equip students and teachers during the blended distance learning set-up amid the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. 

Domagoso also said they aim to reduce the expenses of parents in terms of purchasing gadgets and access to the internet to equip their children in time for the opening of classes on Oct. 5. 

“This effort of your city government is to help every student and teacher to continue studying and adapt to the new normal of education,” he said in his post.

“Ito ay tulong na rin natin sa mga magulang para maibsan ang kanilang hirap na mapaaral ang kanilang mga

California City, CA Internet Providers (940 Mbps)

Destiny Viator

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) has the most coverage in California City. HughesNet is also widely available.

22.55 percent of California City residents are cut off from choice for broadband Internet service. This isn’t an unexpected fact since competition between the incumbent providers is low. Locations in the city have an average 1-2 choices for service.

We should note that since FCC data is processed biannually and only made public six or more months later, data shown here may have minor inaccuracies.

Frontier Communications is another commonly available broadband choice for California City, offering DSL service with coverage in 79 percent of the area.

In summary, California City’s broadband Internet infrastructure conforms with a pattern seen in many California communities: strong access to bundled cable and DSL, with the catch that the majority of houses are limited to only one option for subscribing to either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL
