BABC Member Amazon Donates 8,200 Laptops to Seattle Public School Elementary Families, Helping to Cl


Seattle Public Schools, the Alliance for Education, and Amazon recently announced that a donation by Amazon to supply 8,200 laptops to students will help close the gap in Seattle Public Schools’ continuous learning plan during the COVID-19 pandemic. Amazon’s permanent, direct to student donation, valued over $2 million, meets the estimated need for elementary students and will help toward the goal of providing all SPS students with access to a device while at home so they can participate in those parts of continuous learning that call for online access. This donation also kick starts a new fund – the “Education Equity Fund” – stewarded by the Alliance for Education, Seattle Public Schools’ nonprofit partner. This new fund will support students furthest from educational justice in accessing the technology, technical support and additional learning resources required to continue to learn during the COVID-19 crisis.
